I am sure that you will have been following the events in Nepal in recent weeks. Appearances to the contrary, our students leapt into action immediately on hearing the news and, during the Spring Holiday, our Head Students were already planning how they could help. Now they are ready to do so, with specially designed badges and collection boxes lined up to launch to the school community early next week. Sean Neo and Hok Yin Kong have written an article explaining how we are going to support the students and teachers of the British School Kathmandu, a FOBISIA school, in their efforts to rebuild school projects that they have a long-term relationship with. In this way, all support from BIS here in HCMC will reach those in need immediately and will be used for longer term projects to help people in Nepal rebuild their lives.
Parents can support this student-led drive by allowing their children to donate in school, by sending donations to BIS reception or direct to the school in Kathmandu. Sean’s and Hokyin’s article provides full details.
