United Nations Day @

Posted by admin

October 24 has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948.  As a part of DC’s Community Engagement we will this year celebrate this day at our school, and we need a small group of Year 10 students to form the organizing committee.  This group will plan and run our event, which will have the lens of International Mindedness focusing on issues such as intercultural understanding, human rights, peace, development, and tolerance.   Click here and sign up today (there is a limit on how many people can join this C&S Project).

Looking for Nude Food Dudes

Posted by admin

Nude food is where you minimize (or eliminate) the waste that you leave over after you have eaten your lunch.  Plastic wrappers, plastic bottles, chip packets, biscuit wrappers – all of these things end up in our rubbish dumps.  Here in Hong Kong, we produce over 6,450,000 tonnes of rubbish a year that goes to landfills, and these landfills are filling up rapidly.

Keen to do something about this?  Keen to be a Nude food dude, and encourage others to go nude?  Then click here to sign up for the DC Nude Food Day committee, and get involved in organizing the DC Nude Food Day.  (This is only open to Year 11 students – and yes, it can be a C&S Project).  Sign up today!



World Food Day – volunteers wanted

World Food Day logoDid you know that about a third of all food produced globally is wasted?  Here in Hong Kong, according to Friends of the Earth (HK), we produce over 3,000 tonnes of food waste every year!  Then of course there are the food issues of famine and ensuring that we produce enough food for an ever-increasing world population.

World Food Day (16th of October every year) is a day declared by the UN General Assembly to aim to heighten public awareness of world food problems and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty.  We will be holding events / activities here at DC to celebrate this day as a part of our Community Engagement.  We are asking for Year 9 students to form an committee that will orgniase our involvement.   Keen to get involved?  Then click here and sign up today as there is a limit on how many people can join this committee.   And yes – this would be a C&S Project.
