Habitat for Humanity – Youth Build in China!

By | GIN & Clubs | No Comments
A small group of Grade 11 leaders embarked on a 3-day trip to Guangzhou, China to partake in Habitat For Humanity (HFH) (  Young Leaders Build program. Despite having a shorter duration in comparison to CDNIS HFH’s other International Build Trips, this was due to the nature of the trip being slightly different as well. As this was a collaboration between various organizations other than CDNIS, there were many volunteers who were new to service learning, and this provided a first experience where we were tasked with brick transport, digging foundation, mixing cement, and building walls. “Building Homes, Building Hope” is one of the key slogans that represent HFH and many of us were able to witness this firsthand. We encourage many of you young leaders to take advantage of the plentiful opportunities that not only HFH offers but other organizations or events as well. Involving yourself and becoming an engaged member of the wider community and take small steps towards reaching larger goals! Good luck everybody!

Celebrating Semaine de la Francophonie and Supporting Christian Action!

By | GIN & Clubs | No Comments
On the days between March 15 and March 18, Canadian International School’s very own French Club celebrated French Week! Woo-Hoo!

With a fabulous bake sale full of French fresh, hot, and delicious goodies and mouthwatering crepes, the French Club raised an astonishing 9,738 HKD with the help of eager, hungry students. There was a wide range of students from different grades gathering to help us make this happen. French is a language that students love and our love for the French culture and helping society by supporting Christian Action transcends many grades. Christian Action is a local NGO that supports recent refugees in Hong Kong, many of whom are French speakers. Many students came to support the games that were hosted in the gym. The games were diverse and spectacular. The French Club worked extremely hard and we are very proud of them. Many thanks to Mr. Bourcier, Ms. Nobert, Ms. Hosick, and Mr. Breton for being so supportive.
