Minter Ellison backs HK school

Minter Ellison backs HK school

Minter Ellison has conducted a 2010 Chinese New Year card competition as part of its partnership with a Hong Kong school.

MINTER Ellison has conducted a 2010 Chinese New Year card competition as part of its partnership with Hong Kong's The Fresh Fish Traders' School. 


Students of the school were invited to win HK$10,000 for their school and book coupons for themselves by designing the firm's Chinese New Year card.  The winners were announced at the  prize presentation ceremony today.   

 

At the prize presentation ceremony, Minter Ellison Hong Kong-based partner, Steven Yip, spoke about the firm's partnership with The Fresh Fish Traders School. 


"By running this competition, we have been able to build on our relationship with the school and make a  positive contribution to the community in which we live and work. ."

 

The Fresh Fish Traders' School is one of the organisations that Minter Ellison supports in Hong Kong as part of its community investment programme. The school's focus is to provide quality education to children from  disadvantaged backgrounds. Th Chinese New Year card competition aimed to raise funds for the school and also help raise awareness within the local community of the  school's special needs.

 

Entries were received from students aged between 7 and 12 years. The winning design, by Kwong Ming Wai,  features a drawing of a tiger – 2010 is the year of the tiger –  surrounded by the other 11 Chinese  zodiac signs.  The card will be used as Minter Ellison's corporate Chinese New Year card to be sent or emailed  to the firm's clients across the world.

 

Ed McMullen, a senior associate, and Joyce Chua, an associate, Minter  Ellison's relationship lawyers for The Fresh Fish Traders' School, said the quality of the entries received from the students had been outstanding.  


"For several years Minter Ellison has supported Fresh Fish Traders' School with a number of programmes, including teaching assistance  programmes, book and furniture donations and fund raising activities. So when  the firm was looking around for a corporate card to send to our clients for  Chinese New Year, we immediately thought of utilizing the creative talents of  the students at Fresh Fish Traders' School."
