You can find out more about the Island School Trust and its projects at, island.edu.hk/isgiving. One of its longest running projects is the Nicola and Kenneth Bursaries, a fund close to the hearts of many within the Island School community. It was established in 1985 in memory of two students. For decades the Nicola and Kenneth Bursaries has been quietly changing the lives of thousands of students within Hong Kong. Bursaries are awarded to students from Hong Kong schools who need financial help to cover their basic living and school costs. School principals nominate driven and committed students who might not be able to afford to pay for their exam fees, or purchase school supplies or tutoring sessions. Sometimes bursaries are used to cover basic costs such as food or transport. Each bursary is worth $3000 and awards are made at a ceremony in May each year.
