I know you will share with me the enormous shock, concern and sadness at the news over the holiday of the devastating earthquake that has hit Nepal and the associated impact on the communities.
We at BVIS would like to do our bit to support the relief and rebuilding work in the region. There are numerous charities and organisations who have promised support and are requesting charitable donations. We have decided to work alongside our sister FOBISIA school The British School Kathmandu in Nepal.
We are therefore proposing a mufti day as means of raising some funds to support this most needy of causes. We will hold the mufti day on Friday 8th May. On that day students may wear their own clothes (appropriate for school) instead of uniform. This is optional but those who join in will be asked to pay a voluntary contribution of 30,000 VND on the day. Any parent contributions will also be gratefully received and you can make a donation via the school cashier in the Primary office.
Nepal after the destructive earthquake
It is most appropriate that as a school any funds that we are able to raise will benefit directly children and education in the area. Therefore, all the funds received from the Mufti day will be sent to the British School Kathmandu who are working with their students on two charities to directly help the school rebuilding projects for the Bungamati DSA School (hearing and sight impaired children) and the Disabled New Life centre.
BVIS would like to thank you for your continued support.
