The Outreach Committee supports projects that have a service, charitable or environmentally conscious element. The initiative can be student, staff or parent led. Outreach offers funds to projects, as well as mentorship, advice, support and guidance and/or manpower. Here are projects we have supported recently:
A CDNIS parent and Outreach Committee member coordinated a Refugee Walk for 25 parents and students with the Centre for Refugees at Chungking Mansions. The walk highlighted the challenges refugees face when they live in Hong Kong. Outreach covered the cost of the walk. These funds go directly towards supporting the needs of the refugee community, including purchase of items for the homes visited on the day. Parents and students were also asked to make a donation to the agency as well. Photos from the walk are posted on the CISPA Parent Pinboard on Facebook.
The Outreach Committee is working with the Grade 7 teachers to support the MYP Service as Action learning component, one of which will take place on November 16 when students gain ‘Exposure Experiences’. Twenty students will participate for a full day in the ‘FirstHand’ programme developed by the HELP for Helpers NGO. The programme comprises multi-media educational components using software, role playing actives and reflections to build empathy and understanding around the issue and treatment of domestic workers in Hong Kong. The Outreach Committee will be contributing to the cost of the programme.
