To reach out to the low income families in their neighbourhood

Believe that acts of kindness will teach students the concept of “community before self” and change the residents’ perception that students are not civic-minded.

Partnering with Econ Health & Wellness Centre (Queenstown), the Guides and Scouts of Queenstown Secondary School cleaned houses of the low income families and taught them simple craft.

While their peers cleaned the home of the residents, the other students taught the residents how to fold various origami.
