BSB wins China CSR Awards 2016 hosted by AmCham & BritCham

  • China CSR Awards 2016
  • China CSR Awards 2016
  • China CSR Awards 2016
  • China CSR Awards 2016

This year, The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi put forward 4 nominations to the 2016 China CSR Awards, hosted by The American Chamber of Commerce in China and The British Chamber of Commerce in China.  These were for a diverse range of activities showing how our school and pupils address Corporate Social Responsibility within our community. 

BSB was honoured to win in the category of ‘Cross-cultural’ award, especially as this was our first ever nomination.  Two staff (Ms Usher & Mr Pinnock) and two students (Nick Lee and Antoine Delmoitiez) were invited to the awards ceremony on 23rd March, 2016 to receive the accolade.  

It was wonderful to be acknowledged for such a prestigious award alongside companies and schools that operate in the area.  Companies such as Zurich, IBM, Pepsi Co and Coke were all awarded with prizes for outstanding work that helps to contribute to China meeting its 5 Year Plan.  It was an honour to be recognised for all the work our students (and families) do in our local area.  

Please see a brief summary of how our BSB students’ charity works made an impact to our local community.

1.Deaf and Mute School Beijing

Program Leader: Simon Alles/Colleen Usher

How has the program changed the lives of the beneficiaries?

Pupils at a deaf and mute school in south Beijing was supplied the use of buses (paid for by money raised at BSB completing a world record challenge of the world’s Biggest Mathematics Puzzle – 24hr Mathathon).  This enables the deaf and mute pupils to venture out of the school and experience situations different from their everyday lives in school.

What is the long-term impact of the program?

Social interaction for the pupils is an important part of their lives and one that rarely occurs in a day to day setting.   Offering the use of the buses gives the pupils a chance to experience life outside of their existence within the school grounds.

2. Helping with English in Migrant Schools

Program Leader: Colleen Usher /Lorna Snuggs

How has the program changed the lives of the beneficiaries?  

BSB IB CAS students visit Migrant School pupils on some Saturday’s throughout the year along with the Migrant Children’s Foundation (MCF).  BSB students plan, prepare and execute a range of lessons to help pupils become more confident with their use of English.   Pupils increased confidence in their use of the English language and are able to use it in an interactive manner with actual English speakers. 

What is the long-term impact of the program?  

This could possibly give Migrant pupils better life choices when looking for employment or going onto further education. BSB also took part in fund raising activities that MCF organize each year such as BSB students performing in the Murder Mystery Dinner raising funds for Child Health Checks this year.

3. Little Adoption Shop - food and medical care for homeless dogs

Program Leader: Amy Wei, Ella Millibran

How has the program changed the lives of the beneficiaries?  

Over 60,000 rmb was raised from the BSB Fashion Show and the Christmas Fayre. Most of the funds were used to supply pay for food and medical care for dogs with no home.

What is the long-term impact of the program?  

This has funded and helped several homeless dogs find new homes in the local area. This is probably more of a short term program; we are hoping our Year 11 students can drive this project forward next year.

4. Raising funds to supply electric wheelchairs for Zhi Xiang, an orphan at Blue Sky charity in Beijing.

Program Leader: Joshua Nestler and Tamika Sankar

How has the program changed the lives of the beneficiaries?

Over 22,000 rmb was raised from the BSB Christmas Fayre, special donations and BSB Chatterbox Café. These funds provided much needed money for Blue Sky Healing Homes to continue their charity work. Most of the funds will be used to buy Zhi Xiang an electric wheelchair and help other orphans with mobility issues. The wheelchairs have increased mobility and students have the ability to move around more easily, with the battery operated wheelchair.

What is the long-term impact of the program?  

Training to use the wheelchair, hand held controls and improving the ability for the student to move around himself.
