Community Hummingbird Design Contests

The Community Service hummingbird design contest was run across both the Junior and Early Years and Infant Campus, giving students a chance to make a lasting impact.

At BIS HCMC we pride ourselves on providing the opportunities to make a positive change upon the people and environments around us. The Community Service department is at the forefront of providing countless opportunities to do so and has an extensive outreach program that was described as ‘exemplary’ during the most recent BSO inspection

At Primary, the hummingbird stands as our iconic symbol for Community Service. Dating back to the Ancient Aztecs as a symbol of care and empathy, this wonderful creature truly embodies the positive characteristics we look to build through community service. A few weeks ago, our primary students were challenged to design a new hummingbird logo and short story that we could use for BIS HCMC.

We had numerous entries that demonstrated fantastic creativity, passion and thoughtfulness. It was challenging to choose the winners for both contests. The three winning entries were from Erik (F3), Risa (Year 1) and Jacob (Year 2).

At the Junior Campus, Martin Nguyen’s short fable was chosen due to the powerful message that the story held. The full story can be found below but here is an excerpt from the winning entry...

Finally, after a couple of weeks, the forest was rebuilt, and that’s why the hummingbird stood in place of the king, because of it’s leadership skills and how it deals with problems. It does not sit down and give up, but it will persevere to help solve the problem, rebuild the jungle and help others. That is just one example of why the hummingbird is used for the Community Service! Martin, Year 5

Look out for the winning short story and logos, which will be visible around school, on the website and used for our Hummingbird award, which recognises excellence in community service.
