Pui Ching charity musical raises over MOP$700,0002023-07-02

The children’s charity musical "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr.” was a collaborative effort between the Pui Ching Symphonic Band and student actors from our primary and secondary school. The event was held at the school assembly hall on July 2nd.  The musical intends to raise funds for those in need in Macau and mainland China.  Inspired by the theme "Walk by Faith" from the Bible, the musical seeks to instill a positive and optimistic attitude in students when they are faced with the challenges of life. The story also encourages people to love and support one another.  The performance attracted nearly 400 viewers and successfully raised over MOP$700,000.


Principal Kou Kam Fai expressed his appreciation for the support of sponsors, the school board of directors, alumni, and parents, whose encouragement has been the driving force behind our students’ success.  The charity musical has not only given students the opportunity to showcase their talents, but it has also encouraged our students to care for the needs of those less fortunate than they are.  Since 2013, the Pui Ching Charity Musical has successfully raised funds for various causes, such as the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, Wen Ce Primary School in Yingde City, the Watoto Child Care Ministries, the "Valley of Blessings" Charity Association in Portugal, underprivileged areas in Gansu Province, and flood relief efforts in Zhengzhou, Henan Province.  All of this has been made possible thanks to the continuous support of various sectors of society. 


The musical is an adaptation of Ian Fleming’s novel Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and a film by the same name.  It tells the story of the Potts family, who, through their relentless efforts, revive a dilapidated legendary race car and transform it into a magical vehicle capable of flying and swimming. On their journey, they encounter various challenges and face the pursuit of the villainous Baron and his henchmen.  Eventually with courage and intelligence and with the help of the magical car, the Potts family defeat the evil Baron.  The play shows the importance of faith and courage in the face of adversity.  It is hoped that the story will inspire students to face life with the same tenacity and relentless positivity as illustrated in the novel.
