Masarang Club at Victoria Shanghai Academy Helping to Protect Rainforests

Take action! Time to say goodbye to Oreos and Ritz Crackers.

On September 22nd, the Masarang Club presented its plan of action against palm oil to Dr. Guy and Mr. Dawson. This led to the historical decision from the school management and administration not to provide snacks containing palm oil at school functions any longer, once current stock have been used up.

To this end, on October 27th, a tasting session was organised by the Masarang Club to help select alternative snacks that could be offered to guests and parents at Coffee mornings and other school functions. The tasting session was attended by Dr. Guy, Mr. Dawson and Ms. Leung, who is the Head of Admin. They sampled palm-oil-free snacks the members of the club had baked themselves or carefully selected and brought in school.

Furthermore, the Masarang Club is planning on establishing a weekly NO PALM OIL SNACK DAY on Thursdays and is currently working on an advertising campaign in the form of a movie to educate the whole school community about the harmful effects of palm oil.

Do you know all these snacks do not contain palm oil?
