Reusable Mask Competition – Finalists!

Round 2 of the Reusable Mask Competition, held by WANBO, is now open! All of the Island School community are invited to vote for their favourite designs, so students, parents, teachers and alumni please cast your vote.

All votes from Round 1 have been counted and we are down to the final three designs for each House. Congratulations to all the finalists!

Same as before, you will find the three designs for your House at the link below. Please vote for your favourite design using the associated Voting Form. 

Voting opens today and will close on Wednesday 5th May so please start placing your votes now! Please do get behind this initiative and make Island School the first school in Hong Kong to use just reusable masks!

Clement Kwan (10R), WANBO leader, said, “We have been really happy with how far this mask initiative progress has gone. We’re very excited to start transitioning our school out from disposable masks to reusable ones, it has been great seeing so many students across the year groups working hard on their house’s very own mask designs. After seeing the statistics of disposable masks increasing from the past few months even reaching the millions in Hong Kong, it’s been great to see our school community working hard on making a change and being so supportive of WANBO’s initiatives.” 

The WANBO team is looking to recruit new volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Ross Burrough (ross.burrough@online.island.edu.hk). Space on the teams are limited, so early sign up is advised.
