SPOTLIGHT BEIJING Ivy Academy Central Park Campus Ivy MI Kindergarten Lijing Campus Ivy Bilingual School Ocean Express Campus Ivy Bilingual School Orchid Garden Campus Ivy Academy Sanlitun Campus For our students at Ivy Bilingual Schools in Beijing, they chose to run! Hosted at Daystar Academy Beigao Campus on Tuesday October 16th, students from Ivy Bilingual School Ocean Express Campus and Orchid Garden Campus also gave their all by running their hearts out. Despite the pollution which forced them to run indoors, the change in location didn’t dampen their enthusiasm one bit! That’s because they were trying their best to help others in need. On October 27th, China Charity Federation and Ivy Academy Central Park Campus held “Love Under the Blue Sky”, a charity donation and sales campaign, at the central park of Xincheng International. The campaign collected 75 kilograms in donated goods, and close to 2,000 RMB in cash, all donated to China Charity Federation to help babies with congenital heart disease in rural families in Guizhou. In order to develop the virtues of “humanity, charity and devotion” of kids, and help students experience the joy of giving, Ivy MI Kindergarten Lijing Campus carried out a flea market – “Passing love with little hands • Fill the world with love” on the outdoor playground in mid-September. The flea market raised a total of over 1,500 RMB, and was donated to Chaoyang District Charity Association. Let’s accumulate our kindness into an ocean of love. This time, OE Campus raised over 11,000 RMB for Children’s Hope to provide medical treatment for children with disabilities and purchase material goods for them. Meanwhile, students from OG Campus joined forces to walk, jog, or run, and were able to raise over 6,000 RMB to support Our Learning House (仁育苑学习 中心), a learning center for children with disabilities. On October 18th, Ivy Academy Sanlitun Campus also ran at Daystar Academy Beigao Campus, and were able to enjoy crisp, beautiful blue skies on the day of their run. The parents also came out to support their children at the run. In the end, they raised close to 20,000 RMB to help a child receive a liver transplant. Look at how energetic and excited everyone was! What a wonderful job everyone did, well done! 13
