The Shrewsbury Parents Association were delighted to announce the raising of almost HKD 10,000 through the hosting of a silent auction at a recent Winter Festival.
With funds due to be split equally between the four charity partners that act in support of our Service Programme, particular thanks are owed to Hong Kong based artist and educator, Eleanor McColl, and The Grand Hyatt for their generous prize donations.
The Service Programme at Shrewsbury supports the delivery of our Global Citizenship and Intercultural Learning framework, with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 17 (Partnership) identified as a common central focus. It is designed to challenge, engage, affect and inspire our young students.
"I was thrilled to be able to join the Shrewsbury community for their Winter Festival and thoroughly enjoyed connecting with students, teachers and parents.”
Fiona Barker, Communications Director, HandsOn Hong Kong
“The donations made to HandsOn HongKong, Plastic Free Seas, ImpactHK and Box of Hope provides a good early signal of our intention to deepen and broaden the relationships we share.”
Ben Keeling, Shrewsbury Principal
