A Busy Year for the GIN Club!

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

The GIN (Global Issues Network Club) represented Carol Morgan at two different conferences this year. In October they travelled to Academia Cotopaxi, in Ecuador to share their Solar Tree project and in March they visited the International School of Panama to share their Bike and Blend project. Additionally Project Girl, a member of the Global Issues Network for the past three years,  participated in both conferences sharing their service learning experience empowering girls at Batey Lecheria in the DR.

In September, the GIN club hosted a service learning event called "shopping experience" where the second floor of the Donald Reid Cabral Library was transformed into a full on store where maintenance workers were invited to "shop" for clothes and accessories in exchange for tokens evenly distributed amongst all staff.

As every year, the GIN club participated in both the Halloween Frolic and the Spring Fest with every member of the club taking shifts to share our successes with our community and collect funds for future projects.

To conclude this school year’s activities, and in order to commemorate Earth Day in April, the CMS GIN club sponsored a spirit dress up week representing the four elements: earth, fire, water and air. A community chalk wall was placed next to the Propagas Shark Rock Cafe where the entire school community shared their messages through art and free expression conveying what they love about earth.
