BISS Puxi Students to Revisit Qing Pu Xiulong Migrant School

17 February 2016

After a short break due to the longer Chinese New Year holidays for the migrant school, students will be returning to Qing Pu Xiulong Migrant school next Wednesday. Again we have over 40 students involved in this ECA with focus on language exchange and the Science club.

 

  • Migrant School

Flora Ryu, a Year 11 student offered her thoughts on the ECA:

For the past two years, I have had the privilege to work with young students of Chinese migrant families who struggle with attaining high quality education and sanitation. Every volunteer is paired with a migrant student, and my personal experience at Qingpu Xiulong Migrant School taught me that volunteering isn’t merely the action of fulfilling certain roles and responsibilities but rather is an opportunity for me to make a genuine dedicated commitment to those whom I can help. Though I had difficulties in attracting students attention at first, the most impressive memory was decorating the masks with my two buddies together and discussing the creative ideas with them in Chinese that I practiced very hard for effective communication. I was satisfied with cooperation activities as I and my buddies can have many conversations. Contrary to my prior beliefs, being involved in a community is not defined by over-committing myself to a broad array of things. I learned that making a difference does not have to be on a grandiose scale, but that change can occur by my actions that positively influence another person.
