Students Organise Present Drive for Sha Tin Community

The Connected Communities Committee is organising another significant partnership event with the Sha Tin community, hosting a presents donation drive where gifts can be purchased.

Lunar New Year is greatly valued across Hong Kong, and the Connected Communities Committee hopes to provide some presents for Sha Tin. Please bring some presents as Lunar New Year gifts! The desired price range should be between $50-100. The Committee would like donations of heartwarming things that can be used by all residents regardless of age/gender. 

A list of donation suggestions:

  • Scarfs
  • Hats
  • Warm packs 
  • Towels 
  • Stationeries
  • Board Games
  • Hand Sanitizers
  • Hand warmers
  • Masks

From Friday, 13 January, to Thursday, 2 February, members of the Committee will be stationed in the G/F Courtyard area during break and lunchtime to collect donations. Those who participate may receive a coupon for a pizza party.

Outgoing Committee Heads Wilson Siu (13R), Sam Hui (13W) and Joseph Lau (13D) exclaimed, “Congratulations to the Incoming Heads for organising such a significant project, carrying the torch of community service forward. We are so pleased with the team’s progress and determination to make this event possible. This is an exciting time for Island School to further its connections with the Sha Tin community. We encourage everyone to participate in this meaningful event to make this happen.”

The Connected Communities Committee looks forward to shaping other meaningful initiatives in the future, possibly involving a broader community too.
