Ara Schools – Food & Fun Fair / Jumble Sale for Japanese Earthquake & Tsunami Victims

Dear Parents & Students


We are very pleased and proud that the students of the school have, from the smallest to the biggest, exhibited compassion for those struck by the disaster and devastation that hit Japan recently. The Students have come up with marvellous ideas to help and we would like to do our best to encourage their compassion and desire to come to the aid of others in times of such despair.

As mentioned in our earlier newsletter, the Sri Ara Students (“Araians”) through “Mufti Week” have raised just over RM600/-.

The main event, however for the charity drive for the Japan Disaster Fund will be the Food, Fun Fair and Jumble Sale, this Saturday, 9th April.

We are very positive of a very healthy turnout as several hundred ‘flyers’ have been distributed and posters posted in condominiums, restaurants, cafeterias, clinics, petrol stations and shops. Your help as the supportive and proud parents you all are would be very much appreciated!

We urgently need parents and students to help us make this event successful. We really need :-

  • Donations of clothes, books, toys or anything else you have lying around that you do not need that we can sell. It will not be much of a sale if there is nothing to buy or sell! Cash donations also, would be more than welcome!
  • Volunteer parents who can help in running some of the events on the day. Please advise the school office about your availability as soon as possible.

Please also note the following :-


For safe and easy collection of funds, coupons will be issued for this event and sold on site. If you would like to pre-book these please call the office or send Steve Cowan a note by Friday morning.

Tax Exemption for Contributors

All contributions to this charity will be exempted from tax as arrangements have been made for proceeds to be handed to the Malaysian Red Crescent’s Johor Branch and they have assured me that these will then be given directly to the International Red Cross Association, one of the few Associations recognised by the Japanese Government to handle donations for this cause.

Yours truly,

Nooraini Mohd Yasin
