The end of last term witnessed a successful Christmas Fair, which was led by PTA, supported by the Board and school leaders, and participated in by all staff, students and parents. There were many interesting activities on that day, and nearly RMB 16,000 was raised.
*Last term's Christmas Fair was supported by many parents and teachers who raised money for the event.
After discussion between the PTA and school leaders, it was agreed RMB 15,000 would be donated this year to 7 needy students and families in Guanlan Central School. Among these students, some have physical disabilities, some students' families have critically ill members, and some students come from low-income families. We hope to do our best for the people around us, and give them care and help in difficult times.
On the afternoon of March 24, under the leadership of First Secretary Ms Xiong, BMH team including Assistant Head Diana Choy, PTA representative Ms Ivy Tian, Ms Selena Shi and Ms Zhang Ting, Assistant Coordinator of admin center Ms Abby Wei, and student representatives Sunny Liao, Frankie An, Stella Xu and Jerry Liao arrived at Guanlan Central School and participated in the donation ceremony.
First Secretary Ms Xiong, Assistant Head Diana, Ms Tian and Secretary Xiao delivered speeches and everyone affirmed the significance of mutual assistance between the two schools. Afterwards, the students and parent representatives of Guanlan Central School expressed their gratitude, which was touching.
In the ensuing donation ceremony, BMH representatives gave gifts and cash to the aided students and parents from Guanlan Central School. At the same time, the aided students gave us handwritten thank you cards and flowers. Everyone admired the beautiful handwriting on the cards. After the donation ceremony, BMH representatives interacted with the aided students and their parents. Despite all kinds of difficulties, these children still maintain a positive attitude, which is also a great inspiration to BMH students.
This donation has carried out BMH’s tradition of emphasizing social responsibility. In the future, the BMH community will continue to carry forward the spirit of helping others and responding to those in need in society with actions.
The students in Guanlan Central School are very lively and optimistic. Helping others makes me feel happy and joyful. Seeing that children with worse conditions are so positive, makes me realise we should work hard as we enjoy better conditions.
PTA parent representative
It is a great honour for me to represent the PTA to donate personally the monies raised from the 2022 Christmas Fair to the needy students of Guanlan Central School, and convey to them the love and encouragement from every member of the BMH community. Hearing the childish and sincere speeches of the children, I choked up several times. I hope that the donation can actually help them and add some courage and hope to them on the way forward. I think the meaning of charity is to illuminate others and warm ourselves...
