Chinese New Year bake sale
Thank you all for supporting this year’s Chinese New Year bake sale – for the delicious cakes and of course for your donations. $3,350 will be donated to Angels for Orphans www.angelsfororphans.co.uk, a charity that aims to provide funding to improve children’s lives worldwide, in particular partnering with organisations in Hong Kong, Cambodia and Indonesia.
We are collating all your wonderful recipes for our cakes and cookies cook book which we will sell in March with proceeds going to Angels for Orphans. If you would like to contribute your favourite recipe, please email it through.
Our recent fundraising events have been a great success. The Christmas fair raised an amazing $76,000 and the second-hand sale $13,300. These funds are going towards a number of projects – for the children, a new and improved mud kitchen/outdoor messy play area by the sandpit, a climbing frame in the playground, and some modifications to the front slide; for the school in general, a new office.
Thank everyone for your support and generosity which helps make SKIP the fantastic preschool it is!
Kung Hei Fat Choi. Wishing you a happy and healthy year of the monkey.
