Since the establishment of Veritas Volunteer League, with the support of all the teachers and parents, our children have carried on the fine tradition of the Volunteer League, with the volunteer spirit of “dedication, fraternity, cooperation and progress”, and fulfilled their love, enthusiasm and social responsibility in different fields.
At the beginning of the new school year, the volunteer service teams are taking actions:
On September 6 & September 19, teachers and students from Volunteer League with the Lions Clubs-- Beijing service reading club, walked into the Anmin Migrant Primary School two times,sending their love and care to those sisters and brothers with their own advantages and hobbies. In order to make the activity held successfully, our children began to prepare a few days in advance with a clear division of labor, and the tacit coordination. Some children were responsible for photography, a number of children were responsible for news writing, certain children as the host of the live activities while some students brought wonderful talent show with interaction among those local students during happy on-site teaching. children may have more responsibility through contaction and understanding the different families’ background!
On September21, under the guidance of teachers, the students from the Volunteer League went to the Aomei Language and Hearing Rehabilitation Center in Chaoyang District, which is students’ designated service place. During the Mid-Autumn festival, the students and the children in the rehabilitation center experienced the traditional Chinese festival culture together. Although the children can not hear clearly, but under the patient communication and demonstration of elder brothers and sisters, they played games together happily, listenning to insects, making moon cakes, all faces were filled with sweet smiles. The students have gotten the power of love through accompanying them, and realized that no matter whether they are sound or not, everyone is worthy of respect!
On September 22, as the Double Ninth Festival is coming in China, in order to carry forward the traditional virtues of respect for the old, our students from Veritas Volunteers League and the lion club Pangu Service Team came to the designated service place - Yi Shou Fu Nursing Home, holding the Double Ninth Festival party for the old. Team members brought fruit, snacks and other comfort goods for the old man, personally sent to those grandparents. They also prepared wonderful artistic performances for our grandparents and spent a warm and joyful Double Ninth Festival together. Our studetns have sent them best wishes through singing, dancing to all the old man. At the end of the activity, the children picked up the garbage, accompanied the elderly to chat, and helped them go back room. Subtle actions move others while it can illuminate ourselves, with their efforts to retrieve the bright pennant, we are in action!
A kind of beauty blooms within the service! A trickle of water can become a river, a drop of love can be condensed into gorgeous colors. Welcome more people join our team, let the spirit of volunteerism root and sprout, deeply growing in the heart of every volunteer! I am proud that I am a volunteer!
