The money that was raised will help the Lam Dong school to purchase a clothes dryer. I have tasked the year group with raising an ambitious VND40,000,000, VND10,000,000 per tutor group. I have given them until December to achieve this goal. I am proud to say that during their fundraiser we achieved more than 50% of our target with a whopping VND20,102,000! I was particularly impressed with 10S who managed to take home VND8,372,000 in 50 minutes. They do have the advantage of our Business teacher Mr Crofts as a form tutor!
In preparation for this event, students were split into teams comprising of a games team, a competitions team, a refreshments team and a marketing team. This ensured a wide range of activities on offer during the fair and the sweet treats helped to keep spirits high throughout the morning. Years 7 - 9 were invited to enjoy the fair and we are grateful to them for their generous contributions to our fundraising total.
I look forward to seeing how Year 10 and 11P find the rest of the funds required to reach our goal. This kind of problem-solving and activity will be excellent preparation for their future IB CAS programme as well as providing valuable resources to the Lam Dong school.
