Giving Project Update
It was great to have the founder and director of Taiwan Sunshine, Mr. Uwe Maurer, on campus last week. All of the students had a chance to hear him talk about the work being done by Taiwan Sunshine. We have raised over 87,000NT towards a truck. Our elementary students are working on raising funds through doing chores and hosting a walk-a-thon. The walk-a-thon mirrors the walk around Taiwan that Mr. Maurer is doing this month. Our middle school students are preparing for a CSL Hero Games at RenWu special needs school in March. Mr. Maurer will return at that time to help the middle school run the activity. Our high school students are planning camps and selling breakfast foods to raise funds. I am excited to see all of our students involved in this project in some way. Thank you for supporting the Giving Project. You can give directly to Taiwan Sunshine through this link.
我們很榮幸上週能邀請到恩美協會的創辦人暨執行長Uwe Maurer先生來到我們學校。所有學生都有機會聽到他談論恩美協會正在進行的工作。 我們已經為卡車籌募了新台幣87,000元。我們的小學生也正在藉由做家務事和舉辦徒步活動來籌募資金。 此徒步活動是在向Maurer先生本月的徒步環島之旅致敬。我們的中學生則正在為三月份將於仁武特教舉辦的CSL「我是小英雄運動會」做準備。 Maurer先生屆時將來協助我們的中學生來進行此項活動。我們的高中生正在計劃舉辦營隊和販售早餐來籌募捐款。真的很高興看到我們所有的學生都各自用不同的方式來參與這項計畫。感謝您支持此募捐計畫。 您可以透過此連結直接捐款給恩美協會。

As a school, we take bullying seriously and follow specific procedures to ensure that reports of bullying are taken seriously. It is important to make sure all of us are talking about the same thing when we are talking about bullying. There is a difference between children being rude, mean, and bullying. Research tells us that bullying includes three components, intentionality, repetition, and a power imbalance. You can read more about these ideas in this excellent article. Often what we see and what is reported home is rude behavior that is unkind but accidental or mean behavior that is unkind and purposeful but perhaps not repeated or containing a power imbalance. Power imbalance happens when there is an age difference, size difference, or a group versus an individual. At MAK, we are constantly teaching children kindness and respect. We also investigate all reports of bullying and after evaluating those issues deal with them appropriately. We hope this information and checklist are helpful to you.
Dear MAK Families,
We’d like to let you know that we are hosting a Volleyball Camp over this year’s CNY break!!
This camp will not only be beneficial to your volleyball skills and technique, but hopefully you’ll also have a lot of fun during these three days :)) This camp will primarily be focused on strengthening your basic foundation and techniques. Ultimately, we hope that this camp will boost your confidence as a player. The student coaches, Annette Huang (12) and Koki Shibata(12), will also be sharing some advice and tips to help you navigate the court better as well. And if you’re wondering, snacks will be provided :))
If you participated in our winter volleyball camp, you may have noticed that the registration fee has increased. This is because we have decided to donate all of our profit towards MAK’s Giving Project AND to provide more snacks/drinks for all of you. This year, MAK is partnering with Taiwan Sunshine, a nonprofit organization working to help children with disabilities. All donations will go towards Taiwan Sunshine’s new project to provide a space for children with disabilities to work for themselves and to sell their produce.
As we get closer to the start of camp, we’ll send out another email with more information about the schedule and what you’ll need for this camp.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions/concerns
