ISKL: More Than Just Locks!

At The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), we are guided by our vision to ‘know yourself, care for all, and create a better world.’ This was exemplified recently when four Grade 3 students, Emma, Lino, Minseo, and Angela decided to run a hair donation campaign.

The project started last semester when best friends Emma and Lino decided to donate their hair after hearing about Locks of Hope, an association in Malaysia that allows the public to donate their hair to be turned into wigs for cancer patients.

Their actions then inspired two of their close friends, Minseo and Angela, to follow suit this semester. Together with their teachers, Yuka Kominato and Alex Lancia, the project culminated in a student-led donation campaign involving 18 students, three parents, and two teachers!
