Thank you to the entire CDNIS community for donating 16 large boxes of food goods for the Home of Love Charity in Sham Shui Po. A group of Grade 6 students led this initiative which has been running for over 10 years. They collected and boxed the donations, with 5 students joining Mr Schulte to deliver the donations. The Sisters at Home of Love were very thankful, giving the students a tour of the kitchen and boarding houses and inviting us back to join them for lunch anytime.
The beach cleanup held at the rocky shores of the Sandy Bay Swimming Shed on western HK Island on 18th of January was a success! Upper school students participated in the first 2019 beach cleanup organized by the CDNIS E-Club, and they spent their Friday afternoon helping out the local community by picking up trash. They collected around 8 bags filled with trash, 2 bags that were able to be recycled, items such as plastic bottles, styrofoam boxes, metal parts, etc. were found all along the beach. Thanks to the 8 volunteers that came to make a difference in our environment!
Check out this fantastically animated video about microbeads by two students from Gr. 5, Maya and Laurel!
It even comes complete with a short & simple experiment for anyone to see if they have products containing microbeads!
Here is the story of Teri, a student from Gr. 5, talking about her recent multi-activity simulation & fundraising action in support of The Women’s Foundation:
I was interested in Women’s Rights growing up and I knew that The Women’s Foundation helped Women in Hong Kong who are being denied rights and also building confidence in to-be adults. I was interested in their events and wanted to help spread the message about Women in Hong Kong.
I decided to have a simulation in a bracelet factory where there are different roles for assigned genders, but men have more dominating roles, whereas Women have more harder jobs like making the bracelets. All the bracelets made in the simulation were sold in the recent fundraiser.
In the process, I learned a lot about leadership, time management and planning as these types of projects require a lot of these skills. All in all, I had a really good time doing this and I was happy to help support The Women’s Foundation.
