Catalyst Event: Igniting Change Through Talks and Fundraising by Stonyhurst International School – 28th to 29th  March 2024, Stonyhurst International School

Led by Mr. Caellum McIntosh, Ms. Tan Xiang Yi and Mr. Austinn Ng, from Year 9 Lower Secondary School, Stonyhurst International School organised a basketball competition on the 28th of March 2024 to fundraise for Water Watch Penang.

On the next day, during the school assembly, as introduction, Water Watch Penang (WWP) were invited to give a brief introduction about WWP as well as the main challenges in water conservation in Penang. Dr. Hong Chern Wern, the Executive Manager, highlighted on the main water issues in Penang especially on its ‘water-poor’ status and low tariff that leads to high water wastage in Penang.

In-line with Stonyhurst’s enrolment in the Eco-School’s programme Dr. Hong has also shared on WWP’s main activity including guiding the students in the seven-step methodology towards achieving the internationally recognised ‘Green Flag’.

Mr. Caellum McIntosh, the project leader has also announced that the fund-raising basketball tournament has managed to raise a total of RM1300.00 for Water Watch Penang’s cause.

Dr. Hong added that, with future engagement with Stonyhurst on water conservation and education session, the fund will be used towards achieving the school’s water-related project.

Water Watch Penang would like to express its gratitude for Stonyhurst fundraising initiatives. We look forward to collaborating with your team on water education and conservation this year.
