E-Club: Allies for Action and GIN Week

By | GIN & Clubs, Green | No Comments

In the week leading up to Earth Hour 2015 (March 28th), the E-Club held our Allies for Action awareness-raising campaign, showing the fruits of our members’ labour. Having worked on various projects since February, members formed groups and initiated their own projects in order to raise awareness about an issue close to their hearts, to do with the environment. Ultimately, our students showed off their knowledge and their skills in the form of posters, videos, and different artworks!

Check out one group’s Public Service Announcement on Paper Usage here, and pictures of the project here.

In addition to our Allies for Action campaign, our members also participated in an Earth Hour pledge activity, organized by the Executive team in collaboration with the Animal Welfare Club. Together, we hosted a pledge-making station in the Forum on Monday and Tuesday lunch, and asked our school community to make pledges for the environment. This was a fun activity that made us all think about the little things that we can do to help the Earth!


E-Club and Geography Club – Beach Clean Up!

By | GIN & Clubs, Green | No Comments

The E-Club and the Geography Club went on a joint hike and beach cleanup in between Mui Wo and Pui O on the 8th of February, 2015. With a team of ten, plus a few teachers, we were able to collect tens of bags of trash, leaving the beach much cleaner than it had been at the start. This was an awesome opportunity for our members to take action in the wider Hong Kong community, and we are very proud of our members for being so proactive. We learned together that even one person filling one bag of trash can make a huge difference!


Interact Club – Famine 10

By | GIN & Clubs, Social Justice | No Comments

The Interact Club in CDNIS is a student organised group sponsored by Hong Kong’s Rotary Organisation ( The club’s mission statement is to tackle local and global issues by participating in monthly service activities. On March 27th, more than 40 students took part in Famine 10, an annual event where students fasted for 10 hours and completed lunch and after school simulations in order to raise awareness for famine in our world. This year, our theme was health and diseases, and we focused on how this is a major factor that causes famine. All proceeds went towards World Vision, a humanitarian organisation which tackles the causes of poverty and injustice. After fasting for 10 hours, students came out understanding that not all people are as fortunate as we are. By participating in the simulations, students had a taste of what life is like for the less fortunate. Students were also able to gain new knowledge about diseases of poverty and how it affects the lives of communities. From this event, we hope students recognise that they are able to make a difference to the global community.
