Operation Santa Claus
Charitable Free Dress Day
Friday, 15 December 2023
Dear AIS Parents, Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Since 1988, the annual Operation Santa Claus campaign has successfully raised important funds that have helped transform the lives of thousands of people across Hong Kong. AIS has been a long time partner of Operation Santa Claus for over 15 years, raising over HK$123,000.00 to date. Last year, our partnership was featured in the South China Morning Post (SCMP) – LINK TO STORY.
Jointly organized by the SCMP and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK), Operation Santa Claus has supported more than 90 different charities over the years, providing hope and funding for those who need it most. For more information about this important Hong Kong charity, please follow this LINK.
As we have in the past, AIS will once again join with the rest of the Hong Kong community in making a contribution to this important fundraising campaign by organizing a Red and Green Charitable Free Dress Day for all students and staff across the school. On Friday 15 December, everyone is encouraged to come to school wearing clothes in the seasonal colors of red and green, in the spirit of the holiday season. For the privilege of dressing casually, students and staff are asked to donate a minimum of HK$20.00 for this worthwhile cause.
Please help us do our part as global citizens to continue this important tradition, as we once again model two of our school’s founding Core Values – Justice and Love – for our students and community.
Thank you again for your support. It’s clear that together, we can make a big difference.
Head of School
