We are committed to raising money and supporting those less privileged.

Helping others, especially those less fortunate or in times of great need is something that the students and staff in the International Section of the Korean International School view as extremely important. The concept of ‘giving’ plays an important role school-wide, and links strongly with our shared core values of vision, passion and action. We actively fundraise and undertake awareness campaigns throughout the year for a variety of regionally based and international charities. KIS has supported various charities including, LAP, UNICEF and Operation Santa Claus. Box of Hope has always been an exciting opportunity for our students and we again look forward to participating in this fantastic charity. We will continue supporting many more projects over the coming years.

We also value the concept of ‘Community service’ and actively develop a High School trip every year in which student leaders travel to remote communities and undertake local problems with local solutions.

In previous years:

  • The Primary Cultural Fair in December 2023 was a great success, raising a total of $27,385 for Operation Santa Claus (OSC). In addition, the Secondary Christmas Market contributed $9200, bringing the grand total raised by KIS to $36,585 for OSC. As a result of these efforts, KIS has been honoured with the ‘Most Creative Fundraiser Award’ this year.
  • Groups have travelled to rural Chinese villages in the Yangshuo area to work with primary school students and promote inter-school links and community ties. We have also visited Nepal and built a local community centre.
  • Students have visited Cambodia to lend their support to a local village. We have raised over $6000 for this cause but our time and effort provided will also be invaluable.
