Primary PTG Fundraising 2018-2019

Using the funds raised during the BIS Spring Fair, our Primary PTG have helped to fulfill the funding requests of our Primary Campus community partners as a thank you for the great education and exposure opportunities they offer our students through various exchange activities during the academic year.

As a yearly tradition, BIS Primary PTG raises funds through the Spring Fair so they can support the needs of community partners who have been involved in Primary campus year projects, events and clubs.

Before the Spring Fair, the BIS Community Service Office reached out to the community partners and discussed their needs to place them on the wish-list for the PTG to consider. This year we have moved towards more sustainable endeavours rather than purely consumables and we also gave priority to education-related needs abiding by BIS' strategic goals when it comes to community service learning.

Endangered Asian Species Trust (EAST) wanted four new ranger bikes to help support the efforts of the amazing team of rangers while feeding animals in the wild. The PTG agreed to fund the bicycles with 10,000,000 VND.

Knowing that the children under the care of Ky Quang pagoda are disadvantaged and with multiple disabilities, the PTG agreed to generously provide 45,000,000 VND to cover a day trip to the beach for 20 children and also purchase two washing machines with 10 kg capacity each to help improve hygiene standards at the pagoda.
