YCIS students build solar lights for charity project

The Year 1 and Year 4 students have been engaged this month in an extraordinary charitable project called “Solar Buddy”, connecting Yew Chung International School of Shanghai students with children from Ethiopia by building and supplying them with solar powered lights.

 

Year 1 teacher Laura Colton said: “The school is immensely supportive of initiatives like the Solar Buddy project, which deeply enrich and impact the students’ educational experience. The staff here are also very committed to creating an education that enhances the children’s learning and which affects them deeply. It makes for families who are committed to the school for years on end”.
