HS DAILY – Friday, April 14, 2017


  • Social Media

In China, the government has banned social media such as facebook, google, and youtube. They have blocked world’s largest social media and deleted comments that affect the politics of China negatively. The censorships led to researchers having trouble getting information. Google was banned because the government was hacking into Gmail accounts and google told the Chinese people and the government did not like that at all and banned it.

By this, we can all be grateful that we can use these social media daily and connect with our friends through technology. To show that we’re grateful we want you to post one thing that you are grateful for, on social media. (Julius and Jennifer)

  • 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.

Thank you, (Sam Coutts, CHT group)
