DCB Student Recognised at CSR Awards

 

Service to others, a fundamental part of the Dulwich ethos, was in full evidence at the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards, organised by the British and American Chambers of Commerce on 3rd May 2017 . These awards recognise the most outstanding and long-lasting commitments to those less fortunate throughout China. The only student who gained an award was our own Tony L (Year 13) for his Project Nightingale. Tony was awarded an Honourable Mention in the Integration category. 

 

At the start of his Year 12 year, Tony founded Project Nightingale with fellow students Harry, Maggie and Isabella. The project has inspired musical collaborations with migrant schools over the last two years. Tony explained, 'We identified that children in migrant schools have much less opportunity to interact with music and experience the joy music has brought to us. We started going to a migrant school in Tongzhou and taught music every Saturday.’ He added that getting up to do this every week was hard and seemed like a chore initially, but then it made him feel well set up for the weekend!

 

It was extraordinary for a school based student-led project to be honoured and recognized from over 80 entries this year.  Tony was the youngest person at the awards and competing against huge corporations, banks, and real estate companies. Well done Tony and team for this project, which has already been handed on to others, to ensure a continuing legacy.
