Dear Parents & Students
As a school, we strive to educate leaders of competence, conscience and compassion. One way we show our on-going compassion is through our charity drives – mainly the Sri Ara International & Private School Food & Funfair and Jumble Sale. Each year the students of Sri Ara organise a school charity drive and this event is open to the public and donations are greatly appreciated. We encourage all who are interested to join us at our coming fundraising event. The event is on Saturday, September 14 and will begin at 8.30 a.m. in the Sri Ara school grounds, 23 Jalan Straits View. It is a replacement day for the school so attendance is compulsory. Students will have to be in school by 8 am and go home at 3.30 pm.
Last year Sri Ara schools collected a total of RM8,013.20 and part of the proceeds was donated to the Malaysian Red Cross Society. This year, Sri Ara will fundraise through the Food & Funfair and Jumble Sale and part of the proceeds will go to a charity of the children’s choice.
However, everyone at Sri Ara knows it would not be a charity drive without the combined efforts of teachers, students and parents. We are very fortunate to have very supportive parents at Sri Ara and we value your support. For those who would like to contribute to the jumble sale, kindly bring in the items to the office for us to begin sorting and tagging or should you want rent a stall to sell things for charity, we would appreciate if you could contact Ms. Niloufer about your proposals.
For safe and easy collection of funds, coupons will be issued for this event. Each student will be required to sell at least 10 coupon booklets at RM10.00 each. Do encourage your friends and family to join in the fun whilst contributing to a good cause.
