Soap for Box of Hope

Posted by Peter MUIR

The Year 7 and 8 Community Engagement Captains are holding a soap drive in support of Box of Hope initiative.  DC primary students will be donating small boxes containing useful/educational items that will be donated to underprivileged children in Hong Kong and Asia.  DC secondary students, especially those in Years 7 and 8, are asked to donate a bar of soap that will be added to the boxes.  This soap will help improve personal hygiene for those that cannot afford basic necessities.  The soap collection point will be at the front of the school from Monday November 3rd to Friday November 7th.  Please do not donate liquid soap – bars of soap only.

Lantau artist and activist Liina Klauss is holding a waste-to-art installation 31.10 – 01.11. at Shui Hau beach on Lantau Island.  The amount of trash washed ashore this year is unprecedented and a request is made to for nature and art lovers alike to get involved in cleaning up the beach and watching art in progress.  In Liina’s words “let’s get as many hands as possible to make this installation a huge one to show the world this ugly truth!”
