Schools come together to help the recovery effort in Nepal

It has been a month since the devastating earthquake in Nepal which claimed thousands of lives and left many more homeless. Since then, many schools in Hong Kong have made efforts to help rebuild their community. Here is a taste of what students have done to help Nepal recover from this disaster

South Island School

Event name: Everest Base Camp Challenge
How: Students and staff were invited to see how fast they could run up the stairs from the car park to the school's fifth floor. They could pay to enter, or be sponsored to see if they could post the fastest time.
Amount raised: HK$30,000 (HK$27,000 from the event, plus an extra HK$3,000 from the student council emergency relief fund.)
Comment: "Our chosen recipient for immediate aid will be Tents for Nepal, but we are hoping to build a longer term project … which will have an impact in the community that [students] have been visiting for a number of years."

Daniel Monteiro, student


St Margaret's Girls' College

Event name: Nepali Food Bazaar
How: Nepali students sold food such as chicken momos and chatpate to raise funds for the victims.
Amount raised: HK$3,000
Comment: "It was truly amazing how all the students and teachers got together to raise funds for the victims. Humanity is indeed everything. I must say, I'm a proud St Margaret's student."

Naz Iraj, student


German Swiss International School

Event name: Global Initiatives Nepal Appeal
How: Students donated money and products - including first-aid supplies, blankets and batteries - to create disaster relief kits to send to Nepal. The students also showed off their talents (eg, singing and dancing) at fundraising events to raise even more money.
Amount raised: More than HK$100,000 and 270 disaster relief kits.
Comment: "The event was fun and motivating as there was a challenge to see which class could raise the most."

Karl Lam, student


Renaissance College

Event name: Dress for Nepal
How: Students could make a minimum donation of HK$10 to skip their uniforms and come dressed in the colors of the flag of Nepal: red, blue, and white.
Amount raised: HK$53,304
Comment: "Never have I seen so much red, blue and white in RCHK." YP imagines it was a bit like Where's Wally

Anushka Purohit, student


Woodland Group of Pre-schools

Event name: First Steps Himalaya
How: Each of their nine pre-schools across Hong Kong held special activities such as "Crazy Hair and Pyjamas Day" at the Peak Pre-School and "Dress Red, White and Blue Day" at the Montessori Academy.
Amount raised: HK$241,028
Comment: "Teachers talked to the children about their Nepalese counterparts in the quake zone who had lost their homes and had no school to go to any more. The children were very moved by this, and many of them brought their piggy banks to school which they proudly emptied and then helped us to count their hard-earned coins."

Michel Sealy, Deputy General Manager


King George V School

Event name: Lend Nepal a 'Hand'
How: Students filled in in a Nepalese flag-shaped canvas with coloured handprints, for a minimum donation of HK$20.
Amount raised: HK$15,000
Comment: "We really wanted to organise an event that reflected on the cause, as opposed to organising something generic, such as a bake sale. We felt the handprints were a really great way for students to 'leave their mark', and the flag, a way of showing Nepal our support as a community."

Komal Harjani, student head of charity


West Island School

Event name: Unicef Club Bake Sale; Qing and Song Dynasty Day
How: As well as a successful bake sale, for a suggested donation of HK$20 students could wear orange and yellow Qing and Song dynasty colours instead of their school uniform.
Amount raised: HK$22,460
Comment: "Well done to all and I would like to highlight our top contributors from each year group: Well done to 7Q2, 8Y1, 9Y1, 10T2 and 12H3 - a fantastic effort which really is much appreciated."

Jane Foxcroft, Principal


The Big Number

HK$556,000
Raised for Unicef by 41 schools across Hong Kong
