We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU again to all the children, staff and parents for the success of this year’s Primary Campus Charity Days.
At our celebration assembly last Friday, we were delighted to announce that we had raised the staggering total of RM 49,903.
Everyone from Pre-school to Year 6 should be congratulated for their commitment this year, particularly for the vast range of different fundraising activities organised. There was an amazing variety of stalls, money-making schemes, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills, which reflected the real charitable spirit of our school community.
With the money raised, we have been able to purchase much needed items for four charities which will make a considerable difference to others.
We have supported the following organisations:
Malaysian Association for the Blind
The Malaysian Association for the Blind is a charity that aims to help blind people live more fulfilling lives by providing services for them to read and participate fully in daily activities. The money raised by our students has enabled us to purchase braille equipment.
Malaysian Nature Society
The Malaysian Nature Society aims to preserve Malaysia’s natural heritage. Due to deforestation, Malaysia has lost more than 60 species of life form a year. As a result, habitation protection has been their main focus, along with education. Our donation has enabled us to plant trees, assist with educational resources and support campaigning.
Make a Wish Malaysia
The mission of Make a Wish Malaysia is to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to give them joy. Our donation has allowed us to adopt a wish and fulfil the wish of several children and we will follow their journey from start to finish.
UNICEF Malaysia - Banda Aceh Earthquake
UNICEF Malaysia care for children by improving their health, nutrition, water and sanitation. We are supporting UNICEF’s ‘school-in-a-box’ scheme which is distributed to support children in emergency situations. Each kit contains supplies and materials for a teacher and up to 40 students. The purpose of the kit is to ensure the continuation of children’s education by the first 72 hours of an emergency.
As a reward for all the children’s hard work, the teachers put on a special performance of ‘Manic Street Teachers’, the staff band which included all teachers singing along to the tunes.
A special thanks to all staff who have contributed to some very entertaining events like the Gunkathon and Human Hungry Hippos, and thank you again to everyone in our community for your support.
