MS Oasis students engaged in a number of service learning opportunities during SEW Service Emphasis Week from January 19-22. Students spent time assisting elementary students, creating gift bags for the homeless at Seoul Station, or making soaps to support LINK - Liberty in North Korea.
Despite freezing temperatures on Saturday, January 23, a group of 16 students and four teachers went to Seoul Station to hand out the gifts and spend time making connections with homeless people living there. It was an eye opening service learning experience for the students as they engaged and served people in very difficult circumstances. The activity challenge was designed to help students develop greater empathy for others.
