wab-news-photoWestern Academy of Beijing (WAB) Grade 11 student, Dale Z. ( Z. Yuhao ) won a TOP 10 award for his project "60+ club" in the 2013 Beijing Middle/High School Students Social Field Work Competition. 

As the founder of "60+ Club", Dale believes simply being kind to the elderly in Chinese society is far from enough. So, he and his friends took up the responsibility to help the elderly as a group. They went regularly to senior care homes to chat and spend time with them. Then, they developed various personal services to meet the needs of the people they were visiting, ultimately producing a variety of "private custom" accompaniment services. At the same time, through fundraising, they began providing as much material help for the elderly as they could. Dale hopes that as the 60+ Club expands and influences more people, even more people will begin to pay attention to the issue of the elderly in China. Ultimately, Dale hopes that more people will support the "60+" project and help the elderly. 

Noak P., Grade 10 student at WAB, and the music angel for the children of migrant workers, received a “Public Innovation Award” at the ceremony. As many people already know, school resources for children of migrant workers are very limited. In order to offer children of migrant workers the same opportunities to learn music and to make sure their support doesn’t stop after the children’s graduation, Noak is trying a new way to help – to teach people to fish instead of offering fish, so-to-speak – starting with training teachers in the school and improving their music skills. Noak offers one-hour music classes every Saturday to 20 teachers from 5 different migrant worker schools. To make the best of the class, Noak has managed to purchase several guitars, prepares teaching notes, has content outlined before every class and even has his own evaluation standards. Noak hopes more and more people will join them on this program, and hopes there will be a chance to make it into a documentary to share with many more people. Congratulations to both Noak and Dale on a great job well done!
