How you can show your support

Our very existence depends on financial support, assistance and the goodwill of parents and family of the residents, and that of the public. The latter includes individuals, companies and organisations that offer assistance in the form of tax-beneficial donations, time, skills or other resources. We acknowledge all our sponsors and donors.

Here are the different ways that your giving can make a difference.
