The school’s UNICEF chapter approached their regular club meeting with an interactive twist on Monday.

The club aims to connect students with the opportunities to help people all over the world, especially in third world countries.

This means that the students need to be well informed on the situations of the people in these countries.

Instead, of a regular PowerPoint style agenda, the club created simulations of HIV and AIDS and war zones.

The rapid spread of HIV and AIDS was simulated by giving each student a cup filled with a clear liquid and directing them to walk around mixing their cups with other people and if their liquids turned pink they had  “contracted” the disease. Despite having started off with only 2 infected cups, by the end many were infected.

The club also simulated the dangers of war zones through a series of challenges.

“This meeting was more interactive than other meetings,” senior Maninder Singh said. “It because it got the club members engaged in specific activities and helped us learn what daily, what people live in impoverished countries.”
