After learning about the devastating bushfires in Australia, the HJIS Student Council officially initiated their first event: a week full of fundraising for bushfire relief efforts.
The students worked extremely hard and not only raised awareness of the issue, but also urged their fellow students to take action for this cause. This event was a beautiful exhibition of Horizon spirit, student agency, and international-mindedness.
The Horizon community came together and raised ¥338,958! The Student Council visited the Australian Embassy in Japan to present their donations and show their solidarity.
With the great success of this event, students are motivated to work harder and initiate more activities that will benefit local and global communities.
