Coming together as a community

Supporting another person for the simple reason of wanting to help is without a doubt one of the most gratifying feelings in the world.


Over the years at BISS, I have been very lucky to have been involved in several important initiatives which have helped people less fortunate than myself in communities within Shanghai and across Asia and Africa. We have had a strong focus on supporting people within less developed countries, but we must not forget that there are plenty of people suffering in more developed parts of the world and they also need support to overcome the difficulties they are facing.

As many of us are aware, the bush fires burning in Australia have already caused millions of acres of land to be destroyed, with over a billion animals estimated to have been killed in the fires as well as thousands of homes being destroyed and the loss of many lives. This tragedy has touched the hearts of people all over the world and the BISS community has also united in support of Australia. Sunday saw over 100 people attend a boot camp organised by a group of BISS parents which raised nearly 30,000RMB. The event was broadcast live and ran simultaneously with other events all over China. If you would like to donate to this cause, please do so by scanning the QR code below. All money that Asha receives goes directly to the aid relief fund.


In addition to Sunday’s fundraising, we have also had a group of students in Years 7 and 8 selling 3D printed koala bears. The boys came up with this idea after discussing the devastation caused by the fire; so well done to Henri, Yuri, Ruben, Alessandro, Christopher, Miki, Thomas, Hyunsung, Leon, Tevin and Cooper. I know Mr Lancaster has been incredibly impressed with the actions of these young philanthropists and he will be commending them personally after the Chinese New Year celebrations.

The tragedy in Australia is dreadful and we hope the families affected by this disaster can return to some level of normality soon. However, if there are positives to come out of this situation I would like to think it is the way communities have pulled together in difficult circumstances. When I attended the boot camp on Sunday it was great to see so many people representing so many different nationalities uniting for a common cause. Likewise, the boys who are selling the koala bears are not Australian, they come from a range of different countries, but they clearly understand that the suffering of others can be lessened by lending a hand. The people affected by this disaster are primarily Australian, but those trying help are global citizens with a desire to make life better for everyone. That is why I feel privileged to be part of this community and it is why I am confident when students leave BISS Puxi they do so as more empathetic people and as globally aware citizens.
