Walkathon at Jockey Club Sarah Roe School on October 29th, 2014

At 1:30 pm sharp, on this sunny afternoon, all primary and secondary students gathered at the hall. There were 27 Grade six Kowloon Junior School students joining us this year. They chose different tasks to support us, including: stamping on participants’ hands for laps, guarding the four corners of the field and walking with our students. Some parents came along.


Karin, our principal, welcomed everyone and it was our honour to have Ms. Adrienne Watson, the chair lady of Masarang HK Society, a registered local charity helping to protect Asian rainforests and endangered animals, walking with us.


It was amazing to see everyone on the field. Some were fast. Some got seven stamps and some got four. However, the number of laps did not matter as everyone walked for healthy living and for raising funds to protect endangered Asian animals, especially orangutans.  It was impressive that our students walked along with KJS students hand in hand. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s effort.


The Walkathon was surely the highlight of the Health Week!

Ms Mimi Kong, JCSRS Teacher
