Posted by Peter MUIR

Action4acauseA group of DC students who will work with Christian Action’s Chungking Mansions Service Centre has won a HK$3,000 grant to implement their project. The group, which will provide Cantonese and Visual Arts lessons to refugees who are members of the Chungking Mansions Service Centre, were awarded the grant as a part of Kids4Kids ‘Act!on for a Cause’ campaign. This campaign aims at mobilizing youth from diverse backgrounds to take action on real life social issues. Members of the DC student group this week presented their project details at the Kids4Kids centre in Wan Chai. Their project will
provide educational and recreational opportunities for adult refugees. Funds from the grant will be used to cover a part of the costs for refugees to travel to DC where lessons will be held.

Happiness Project Instagram challenge

Happiness instagramAs a part of their ‘Happiness Project’ some Year 10 students are organising an Instagram challenge. In order to participate, you must post a photo on Instagram of you with a piece of paper with either: why you choose to be kind, what makes you smile, a kindness statistic or something you can do to be kind, written on it. Tag a few people and use the hashtag, #spreadthesmilesig.  By tagging other people, you are challenging them to then post their own picture with words related to happiness.
