Field Trip to Asbury

On Friday, a few classes, including mine went to Asbury for a field trip. Asbury is an organisation that helps people that are living in subdivided homes in Hong Kong. When we got there, a man talked about subdivided homes, He new a lot about it because he was actually living in a industrial building. He said, there were no toilets and a space to cook his meals, so he ate outside and walked to public toilets. After that, we were in groups and had a instructor each to guide us where to go, to buy toilet paper and food and lead us to the apartments where the poor families lived. When we got to their home, we gave the mother all the stuff from the market. She was very thankful, we saw one of her children, he was a five year old boy that was playing a game on her phone. She had 3 more children who were at school, the home was very small.

Plastic Free Seas!

Today, We went to a plastic free seas workshop in the upper school science lab. I learned a lot of companies use micro beads (little bits of plastic) in their soaps. They use it instead of natural ingredients because it is more expensive than plastic. Plastic is similar to natural ingredients because it rubs your skin to get the dirt of your face. My group and I chose a product, poured some of it into a bag and put it under the tap while squeezing the soap out. Then we used a blow dryer  to dry it and poured all of the micro beads inside a container. We used a machine that was connected to an i pad so we could see it bigger.

Our Advertised Poster- Unit of Inquiry

Hi! Last Friday, me and my group made a poster about saving animals and helping them find a home, it was called “Money raised is a Puppy saved.” Our target audience were CDNIS students. We thought people would like the poster because we added a lot of pictures and gave them details about why we were doing it, when it was going to be, where it was going to be held and who we were donating to. I think our poster was quite effective because a lot of my classmates came to see it, but some of hem said we didn’t add enough information.
