Run to Raise, the 24 Minute Race

The 24 Minute Race and Dress Yellow Day were held on 28th – 29th November to raise awareness about the anti modern slavery work of Stop the Traffick and to recognise the UN International Abolition of slavery day.

Co-organised by the Island School Social Justice Group during their Action on Poverty Week and the 24 Hour Race leaders, the event involved over 20 members of staff and about 130 students running, and was one of our biggest turnouts yet.

Students and teachers at both Tai Wai and Sha Tin Wai campus completed as many laps of the playgrounds as they could in 24 minutes. With Da Vinci named the winning House Overall.

Senior Head of House, Ms Kate Sommerville said, “This is a great  cross school community event which combines well-being, taking action and raising awareness. Well done to the ISSJG and 24 minute race organisers for another successful year.”

Funds from the DRESS YELLOW DAY will go to the 24 Hour Race fundraising committee for donation to the 24 Hour Race organisation.
