In the aftermath of the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake, one Hong Kong primary school took action to show its pupils cared. In January this year, recipients of that care came to Hong Kong to express their gratitude. Since December 2008, Church of Christ in China Kei Wan Primary School (Aldrich Bay) has been running a pen-pal programme with Sichuan's Ying Xiu Primary School. Ying Xiu Primary School has been rebuilt in Wenchuan county - the epicentre of the quake. The pen-pal programme allowed students from the two schools to share words of care and love. When the earthquake struck, more than half the students and teachers at Ying Xiu were killed. When 20 Ying Xiu student and teacher survivors finally met their pen pals from Hong Kong, the group enjoyed a day at Disneyland. Primary Six Kei Wan student Jeffery Wong recalls meeting his pen pal. 'We were very happy to see each other,' he says. 'It was really exciting for them to be in Hong Kong and visit Disneyland. They were so cheerful. It didn't seem as if they had experienced such a tragedy.' Tiffany Leung says after the quake struck, she wanted to find a way to comfort the students. 'I wanted to find out more about their situation and show that I care by writing letters,' she says. 'Once I asked my pen pal to send me a picture, but her family does not have a camera so she drew a picture of herself. Nobody had ever drawn me a picture like that before. I was really touched.' The pen-pal programme has been such a success the schools hope to make it a long-term project. Jeffery Wong and his pen pal enjoy a ride.
