In July 2017, 36 of our students enjoyed a two-week girls’ sports tour to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang. The students aged 15 to 17 visited the Ramakrishna Ashrama orphanage before they flew home. The girls had taken with them an assortment of gifts including pretty hair accessories, notepads, colourful pens, pencil cases and stickers to present to the underprivileged girls of the home.
Before the trip, the girls had a successful fund-raising campaign taking part in a triathlon, selling cakes and serving smoothies made with bicycle-powered blenders. In total they raised RM16,981 for Ramakrishna Ashrama. This is the second time since 2014 that the school brought its students to Penang and the orphanage. The president of the orphanage said “Their visit is a blessing to the children in our home.”
