This week marks an important point in the service calendar. DPII (senior) students are about to step back from leadership positions and turn over the reins to younger students. In the Recycling & Sustainability service activity Yoon Jae Hwang and Nishant Matthew from the Class of 2015 have both served the group with distinction. They have led from the trenches and modeled excellent approaches to achieving the group’s mission of reducing the school’s ecological footprint. Aside from managing the weekly recycling rounds and paper/cardboard sales they have helped younger students with guided reflection. We wish them well as they step back, prepare for exams and get ready to move out into the world. We are fortunate to have Nandiini  and Nisala from the Class of 2016 ready to sep into Yoon Jae and Nishant’s shoes. Both Nandini and Nisala have already served in the R&S service activity for several years and bring their own  strengths and ideas to the group.

Borrowed form Mr. Lockwood's recent blog post. OSC recycling in action (from the top): Students in the Thursday afternoon R&S service activity collect and sort paper, cardboard and other materials outside the recycling room near the gym. DP Geography students weigh and sell cardboard to our main scrap dealer buyer who will resell it for recycling in India. DP R&S student leaders Nisala, Nandini and Nishant work with younger students on a reflection at the end of the Thursday service session. Data about patterns in consumption and recycling is gathered and analyzed as a key part of this activity.
