New Volunteer Opportunities in the New Year

Hi Leos,

Hope you all had a wonderful winter break! Many of us are already back to work, volunteering at the Festival of the Arts and Dance Show this week — grand thanks for continuing to serve the school community!

To those who are eager to volunteer, we would like to highlight some upcoming/ongoing volunteer opportunities, as listed below.

  • Thu. Jan. 27 International Student Orientation (@ Byrne Creek): a chance to welcome and make friends with new international students on Thursday of the exam week. You will be showing these students around the school and help with fun activities! Note: those who can speak a foreign language will have priority to volunteer.
  • Stream of Dreams Mural Society fish making: you may have seen fences decorated with flocks of fish in your neighbourhood — that’s how we will be helping out! Working sessions are to be announced at Tuesday meetings.
  • Valentines Day Rose Sale origami sessions: help to create beautiful works of art with your adroit hands during the exam week (11AM-3PM) — and maybe earn brownie points from your special someone with this new skill.
  • Lunar (Chinese) New Year Luncheon/Celebration: details to come soon.

We have many more opportunities available. Come to our meetings (Tuesdays at lunch in B104) to find out!
