Box of Hope 2020 – A Different Approach

Dear Parents,

Box of Hope is an annual charity project aimed at providing useful/ educational gifts to underprivileged children in Hong Kong & Asia donated by Hong Kong school children and local organisations. In the past, our school community has filled old shoe boxes with new interesting and educational gifts at home and dropped them off at school. The boxes were then collected and delivered directly to the children in need. Some of these children have never received a gift.

However, due to COVID-19, Box of Hope is facing many restrictions and therefore will not be held in the usual manner. Instead of assembling boxes this year, our school community has been encouraged to raise money through events that we can then donate to Box of Hope. The money will be used to buy goods, food parcels and vouchers to meet the needs of local Hong Kong charities. 

This year, our Student Council members from across the school have decided to have a Whole School Crazy Hair/ Wacky Hat Day on Friday 27th November

For those children in Nursery and Reception, as they will not be in school on that day, we would like to invite the Nursery and Reception children to have Crazy Hair or wear a Wacky Hat on the alternative date of Wednesday 2nd December.

Students can go crazy with their hair – they can curl it, twist it, crimp it, style it or temporarily spray it! It’s time to get creative. They could also wear a crazy wig! Alternatively, they can design and create a wacky hat to wear. The choice is theirs.

It would be greatly appreciated if every student is able to help fundraise for Box of Hope by bringing a $20 donation for the Crazy Hair/Wacky Hat Day, which will then be collected by their classroom teacher/tutor.

All proceeds from this event will be sent to Box of Hope for them to continue the fantastic work they have done and continue to do.

Thank you for your support,

Early Years, Primary and Secondary Student Councillors
