Hong Kong is losing one of its more treasured and iconic symbols, the Chinese White Dolphin. It is now the critical moment to take action and protect the remaining population from further decline. Our S1 Makopanians and members of English Society have taken part in this 'Save the HK Chinese White Dolphin Postcard Campaign' organized by Ark Eden, a non-profit environmental group. We are urging the government to act quickly before we lose these beautiful creatures from HK's waters forever. Our postcards, together with the other 2000 postcards written by students in over 12 different schools have been successfully handed over on 8th January 2014 to Hong Kong Government officials to voice our concerns.
On 30th Nov and 7th Dec, more than 2000 vistors visited our campus and around 700 parents attended our admission talks.
