The Report of Reusing books
In October, 2018, led by some Chinese teachers and our student council, there are about 10 volunteers from grade 10 in our international building who recycled roughly 500 textbooks. After collecting and resorting all the books, they sent all of the books to our school library to make them valuable and useful again.
This activity is aimed at minimizing the waste and pollution, at the same time, it can help our students strengthen the sense of school participation and the respect to books. First, as a student, learning knowledge is our primary mission, and books are the source of knowledge, requiring us to protect and respect as a responsibility.
In addition, while our student life is under the pressure from studies and work, we still need to think highly of enriching our spare life, and it is volunteering that can make our life more colorful and meaningful. The most essential point of organizing such an activity is that protecting environment has become a main worldwide topic，and voluntary work is one of our ways of responding to the call.
During the process of recycling and resorting books, there are many points that should be praised. For example, when we were trying to get volunteers from grade 10, all of them were so enthusiastic that we had gotten enough volunteers from only three classes, which was more than we expected. Additionally, all volunteers treated their work actively and seriously, they came up with various ideas to solve different problems, which can be seen as a valuable capability. Let us hope that all of us will get more capable through more exercise.
Facing the terrible condition that our environment has been polluted and hurt significantly, it is not only our responsibility to protect it and to try to reduce the waste, but also everyone’s duty. Let us take action and take measures to treat nature well and keep our home beauteous!
