SPOTLIGHT NINGBO Ivy Bilingual School Summit Residence Campus In Ningbo, Ivy Bilingual Shool Summit Residence campus has carried out “Week for Change” to change children’s attitude towards the environment we live in and take relevant actions. In the classrooms, students learned to sort our garbage; in open rooms, we put activity materials in order; on the playground, we wiped our slides clean; in our community, children helped pick up the fallen leaves; at the grand phalanx sharing meeting, children demonstrated their beautiful posters and shared what they have learned. The environment we live in has improved because of the care from all children. The students believe that their contribution can help the society even just a little bit, and that gives them- a sense of empowerment. “Week for Change” is part of Ivy Education Group’s “WE CARE” community initiative. In the past three years, we have helped our community by raising funds to support the art and music programs of six migrant workers’ children’s schools in Beijing; painted and renovated classrooms for another migrant children school; purchased daily necessities for a needy school in Tibet etc., supported victims of natural disasters and much more. We aim to ensure that “WE CARE” is a transparent, sustainable and meaningful charity initiative that our community can truly participate in, so that our students can feel empowered, and know that they can make a difference. 17
