Cash, laptops to aid community

Thank you: Representatives from the six charities posing for a picture with their mock cheques.

THANKS to the hard work and generosity of teachers, parents and students, more than RM35,000 had been raised for six charities through the Taylor’s International School (TIS) food and games carnival held at its Kuala Lumpur campus recently.

The charities that were in need of the funds to continue their mission of helping others were Befrienders Kuala Lumpur, Buddy Bear Childline, Fugee School, Make-A-Wish Malaysia, Yayasan Chow Kit and Buku Jalanan Chow Kit.

In another project to help underprivileged children with online learning, the school’s KL and Puchong campuses joined hands in donating 148 laptops to 12 homes and non-profit organisations. The Human Aid Selangor Society, a learning centre for refugee children from Myanmar and Indonesia, which was among the beneficiaries, received 30 devices.

During a visit to the society, TIS executive principal Peter Wells said the school had made it its mission to focus on its Care Movement initiative with many events in the pipeline.

“These efforts give our students a better understanding of different ways the school can help the community around them,” he said.

The fundraising and laptop donation projects were part of the TIS Care Movement, in which students and the school community come together to organise events and activities to help and care for those around them.

Divided into three main components, the initiative focuses on caring for the less fortunate, for the environment and also for themselves.

The focus of the initiative this year is to help others by providing them with what they need.

TIS is passionate about these projects and it is the school’s goal to teach students to respect and care for others, a press release dated Nov 7 read.
