BISS Puxi donates at the Giving Tree Ceremony

29 November 2013

Students proudly donate 300 bags to Giving Tree Charity. Thanks to great effort from our BISS Puxi community. A number of Key Stage 5 students participated in the Giving Tree as a CAS project. Our remit was to plan and organize the whole process from promoting the event to the final ceremony.

First of all, by presenting in assemblies and writing articles in the school newsletter, we raised awareness of this charity and finally succeeded in recruiting 300 volunteers from secondary school.  To fill a hundred of the cash donated bags, we visited Gubei Carrefour and bought books, scarfs, gloves, hats and toys. After three days of sorting the bags with extra volunteers, all the bags were ready to be given to the children. On 29th November, the Giving Tree Committee and bag donors visited the migrant school and attended the ceremony. Students from the migrant school prepared a lovely dance performance for us and in return we sang ‘Rudolf the red nose reindeer’.

We were really happy to see the excited faces of the children when they opened their bags, and we all felt very proud.  The Giving Tree project was definitely a worthwhile experience since we were privileged to bring some happiness to these children who have so much less than us. We also learned many new skills, such as how to work as a team and how to co-operate with others.  We all enjoyed the project and wish to participate again next year.

Last Friday 20 students from BISS Puxi travelled to Zhejiang province to give our Giving Tree bags to the children of migrant workers.

After the hour and a half drive, we arrived in Zhejiang province and started unloading the bags.

The students greeted us with great pleasure - they all ran from their school to greet us, which was very nice.

It took around five minutes to walk to the school. When we got there, we started unloading the bags off the truck and put them in front of the classroom - this took around 20-30 minutes. Then, the whole school lined up in the court and the principal welcomed us. Then, 5 little girls put on a dance for us, and we sang the song “Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer”.

After all that, we went to the classrooms, to give out the bags. This was great as we saw the children just light up when we gave them their bags, but I was quite embarrassed when I pronounced their names wrongly and they would laugh and correct me, oh well, we learn something new every day!

This was definitely a great experience for me and I want to do this again next year!
