  • School Bazaar by Combating Human Trafficking Group (Repeat)

The Combatting Human Trafficking group is hosting a school bazaar on April 27th (Thurs) from 15:00 – 17:00, open to students, teachers and parents. This bazaar will be an opportunity to sell and purchase handmade goods created by members of our community. They may also sell drinks such as Tapioca or bought good/crafts if you wish. We will also be hosting several performances. If you are interested in selling goods or performing at this event, please respond to the following survey.

We are hosting this bazaar in order to support Lighthouse a Japanese organisation working to eradicate human trafficking in Japan. So we would like to ask for a small donation from the performers as well as the sellers in order to raise money and continue to support lighthouse.

On Friday, April 7th we discussed the following: establishing a non-elected media committee, Staff Appreciation Reception, and planning events for next year. The motion to establish a non-elected media committee that would be responsible for documenting StuCo events and cooperating with STUCO passed with a full house, and respective student council members will continue planning and organizing details to start this group next year.

All Student Council members are organizing a staff appreciation reception on April 14th to present a small gift to show gratitude towards non-teaching staff members such as the custodians and office workers for all the work they have done for us this year.

We also started to plan dates to schedule school events for the upcoming school year. If you have any questions, concerns, or opinions, please feel free to contact any of the respective student council members.

Regards, (Angela Choi, Student Council Secretary)
