Fund Raising - Victims of the Haiti Earthquake

We are never too far away to lend a helping hand. Serpent, Bull and Mrs Ong gave a short talk during the P5/6, P3/4 and P1/2 assemblies respectively on Monday and the Cubs were activated almost instantly on Tuesday.

The leaders shared with the school a sad story of a brave little girl, Anaika who was rescued alive from the rubble after the devastating 7.2 Earthquake, however since the infrastructure in Haiti was badly damaged hindering the work of rescuers and medical professionals, she died of internal bleeding that night.The Cubs sold Cream Crackers donated by Serpent, Miss Chiang and Miss Tan for a token amount, and accepted donations. Soaring Eagles Scout Group will continue to accept donations until Wednesday 3 February when the collection will be channeled to UNICEF through Mercy Relief, Singapore.

Watch out for updates on the amount collected.
