Middle School Service Project

Middle School’s STUGO has organized a service project and fundraiser to assist the Taichung PAWS 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 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 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, May 20th, from 8:30 – 11:00AM. Transportation will be by parent carpools.

We hope to continue this activity next 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 is 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.

初中部服務專案

初中部學生會(MS STUGO) 特別為同學們規畫了一次志願服務及募款專案活動,服務與捐款對象是在霧峰區的TPAWS animal shelter(中華民國台中動物福利促進協會)。參加本活動同學將有機會與大約150隻等待被認養的小狗進行互動。參訪當天,同學們將清洗、接著重裝過所有狗兒的碗盆容器。還將幫狗兒們梳毛、與牠們一起散步、甚至一起玩遊戲。同學們與狗兒將進行的接觸與互動,將可以幫助小狗們練習與人類之間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收養。

因為每次參訪人數限制約15人,初中部同學有興趣參加的需盡快交回家長同意書,先繳回同意書的同學將有優先參訪的權利。這次活動參訪的時間訂在5月20日星期六上午8:30-11:00。當天交通將請家長協助接送。

我們希望下學年也能繼續舉辦這類活動,讓更多同學也都能發揮愛心並參與其中。

除了參訪收容中心之外,MS STUGO同時還將為小動物的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。而家長、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,則可以透過初中部同學捐出,或直接將您的捐款投入設在學校圖書館內的捐款箱中。感謝您對這次非常值得付出的專案活動所給予的協助。
