As a school that’s committed to giving back to our society, we have encouraged members of our community to show more love to the less privileged during this COVID-19 lockdown, declared by the Federal Government. In a letter addressed to members of our community, Mrs Lai Koiki, our Executive Director, motivated the members to be optimistic that this challenging period will be over soon.
She advised members to keep following the World Health Organization (WHO) safety precautions, as well as reach out to the needy. “For 35 years we have lived by our motto, ‘In love serve one another,’ which is more important now more than ever. We must continue to lean into the backbone of that collaborative partnership amid the understanding that a life of service is a life that counts. I urge you all to please reach out safely within your network to support the less privileged and the vulnerable in our society.”
“. . . And remember, life will get back to normal soon and hopefully when this experience is over, our lives will include more appreciation of our daily blessings and our relationships,” she wrote.
At the same time, we have also launched a “Window of Hope” campaign, which is meant to inspire people to send messages of love to one another during this difficult time. The campaign asks people to decorate their home windows with hearts, messages of hope, flowers or teddies. And they should take a snapshot of the decoration, post on social media, tagging our official social media handle – @greenspringsschool and using hashtags #WindowOfHope #SpreadTheLove.
