Middle School Service Project

For the second year, middle school’s STUGO has organized a service project and fundraiser to assist the Gougoushan animal shelter in Wufeng District. Students will have an opportunity to work with about 150 dogs waiting for permanent homes. On this visit they will be washing and then refilling all the water and food bowls and containers. They will also be brushing, walking, and even just playing with dogs. This interaction is an important activity for the dogs since it helps them with socializing and learning good manners, so that they have a better chance of being adopted later.

MS students need to return the permission form as soon as possible. Since we need to limit the first visit this year to about 15 students, students who turn in forms first will have the first opportunity to go. This event will take place on Saturday morning, December 2nd, from 8:00 – 11:30AM. Transportation will be provided by the school. We hope to continue this activity two more times this year, so that many students will be able to participate later as well.

Along with the visit to the shelter MS STUGO has also organized a two week long fund-raising drive to provide funds for Veterinary Services. There will be a competition between advisories for donating the most money, with an award for free tea going to each member of the winning advisory group. Parents, staff, faculty, ES and HS students are also urged to donate to this worthy cause. Either send donations with your middle school children, or place your contributions in the container located in the school library. Thank you for your help with this worthwhile project.

初中部學生會(MS STUGO) 將再度舉辦位於霧峰區的狗狗山志願服務及募款活動。參加本活動同學將有機會與約150隻待認養的小狗們進行互動。參訪當天,同學們先清洗狗兒使用的碗盆容器,接著再為牠們裝入食物。還將幫狗兒們梳毛、與牠們一起散步、且一起遊戲。同學們與狗兒將進行的互動,可以幫助牠們練習與人類的社交並學習良好禮貌,讓牠們在未來可以有更好的機會被人們收養。


除了參訪收容中心之外,MS STUGO同時還將為Veterinary Services(獸醫服務)進行為期兩周的募款。這次募款活動在初中部各個advisory group(輔導小組)之間還有捐款總額競賽,希望鼓勵大家多慷慨解囊。活動結算後,捐款最多的小組,每位組員都將可獲得免費茶飲的獎勵。 家長、教職員以及小學部或高中部同學若也想參加這項捐款活動,可以透過初中部同學捐出,或是直接將您的捐款投入設在學校圖書館內的捐款箱中。 感謝您對這非常值得付出的專案活動所給予的任何協助。
