The charity event, driven by the Primary Student Council, involved an ‘Easter Egg Lucky Draw’ in which students could pay a small fee to receive plastic Easter eggs with a variety of different prizes inside. The prizes included house points, chocolate treats, soft toys and even a grand prize of becoming the Primary School Vice-Principal for a whole day. In addition to the prize draws, student organizers also prepared several information boards to let their peers know more about the disaster hit region and the effects Cyclone Pam inflicted on the islands.

Year 6 Primary School Teacher Jane Kang who helped the students organize the charity drive feels that such signs of generosity are a reflection of the character education program within the YCIS curriculum, “Activities like these are important for our students to understand what is happening in the real world. Part of our school motto is to ‘Align with Love and Charity’, and there are so many examples of this happening around the school on a daily basis. We encourage our students to embrace the spirit of giving and they always feel the positive feeling of going the extra mile.”
