Junior Campus Community Service

The significance of community is integral to the educational ethos of the British International School, HCMC, with a strong emphasis being placed on developing service learning opportunities that encourage students to be conscious and active members of their community.  The Community Service Programme has over 40 projects spanning the entire student population of the school from our youngest children in the Foundation Stages to senior students in Year 13 (ages 2-18 years), integrating a range of planned community service activities throughout the curriculum.

During the school year, all Junior Campus students participate in a Community Service Project which is allocated by year group, most of which involve shared learning in collaboration with local government schools through lesson and school exchanges. Students and teachers from both schools are inspired through sharing knowledge, teaching and learning techniques and mutual respect and responsibility towards others in the community is developed.  In addition, the year group projects are complimented by a full and vibrant schedule of co-curricular activities, all of which continue to focus on students donating time and energy as they develop relationships, rather than on fundraising.
