COMMUNITY

‘No act of kindness is ever wasted’ – Aesop

 

Engaging in community service provides students with the opportunity to become active

members of their community and has a lasting, positive impact on society at large.

Community service enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as

provide a service to those who need it most. These are some of the common benefits of

participating in a community service program:

1 Community service develops an increased sense of social responsibility – a global view of

society and a heart for ‘giving back’ and helping others.

1. Provides an opportunity to apply academic learning to real life events.

2. Builds relationships and ‘social connectedness’ with peers and adults, and exposes students to

diversity and multiculturalism.

3. Improves lifelong communication, interpersonal and critical thinking skills.

Nurture for today. Learning for tomorrow. Character for eternity.
