The People's Post, a Claremont/Rondebosch community newspaper, reports on Tuesday 3 July about a community project where the Bishops Interact Club is playing a leading role. Peter Hyslop, head of the arts department at Bishops, is driving this collaborative project called 'Schools for Liesbeek'. The programme consist of cleaning and maintaining a stretch of the Liesbeek river. Peter explains: "The project teaches learners the importance of being involved in serving the community and showing them that caring for the enviroment and looking after the natural resources is one of many important ways of serving the community." The Schools for Liesbeek project works with other schools in the area, charitable organisations, religious groups, and the City of Cape Town. It is really encouraging that Bishops, despite all the other incredible requirements and demands, still prioritise 'service!' Congratulations to Peter and his team. Peter is currently the longest serving staff member at Bishops, and is due to retire at the end of the year. The ODU wishes Peter well!
