Grade 7 Service Day 2015 – Plastic Free Seas

By | Community Service Days, MYP | No Comments
Another option as part of the Grade 7 Service Learning Day was to participate in a boat expedition and beach cleanup with Plastic Free Seas aboard their new Sea Classroom! Students had the opportunity to view ocean organisms, clear remote beaches in Hong Kong of trash and to learn about the harmful impacts of disposable plastics.

“I learned that there are so many things living in the water, that [are] barely visible to the human eye. I also learned that we should all try and cut the consumption of plastic. If we all stopped buying non-essential plastics and styrofoam, our oceans would be so much cleaner.”

By | Community Service Days, MYP | No Comments

As part of Grade 7 Service Learning Day on Friday, November 20th, a group of CDNIS students volunteered at a family organic farm on Cheung Chau island. Students learned how to make a herb spiral based on principles of permaculture and helped the Lam Family create trellises to care for their vegetables.

“I learned that some people really have to work for their food and that I am really lucky just to be able to have good food.”

Grade 7 Service Day 2015 – SoapCycling Option

By | Community Service Days, MYP | No Comments

As part of Grade 7 Service Learning Day on Friday, November 20th, a group of CDNIS students volunteered with the NGO SoapCycling to improve sanitation and hygiene in underprivileged regions, one child at a time. SoapCycling collects and sanitizes slightly used hotel soaps and these life-saving items are then distributed to underprivileged families and schools in disadvantaged communities around the world, particularly Asia.

“I feel that I collaborated greatly with my classmates and we did a fantastic job. We ended up finishing a whole box of clean soaps, and I was really proud of what we accomplished today.”
