How Hoodies Brought Together an IB Class
The class of 2020 experienced what some may label the most challenging year of their academic lives due to COVID-19, but their successors, this year's seniors (Years 12 and 13), have to live with the aftermath of the virus disruptions. With limited activities on campus, students have fewer opportunities to bond and get to know one another. Unsurprisingly, when Mr Jonathan Mellen, Secondary Co-ordinator and University Guidance Counsellor came up with the idea for students to apply themselves to community service and unity through something as simple as their clothes, students were excited. Enter: the YCIS hoodie project.
