Secondary Campus Community Service

The Community Service profile at our Secondary campus gains new momentum every term. Students are very pro-active at planning experiences when visiting our partner schools and prepare engaging and fun activities for children at Thao Dien Disabled School, Binh Tho School and Mai Am Shelter. Our Greenr, Global Goals and All Things Animals clubs work determinedly to share key messages and initiatives, whilst students in other service projects lead campaigns to promote cancer awareness and support the children's oncology ward at a local hospital. Both students and teachers make a point of going out into the local community to make a difference to the lives of others, whether it's to play with the disabled children of Thao Dien School or teach English at Huynh Van Ngoi School, or travel further afield to do activities with children from Thien Phuoc Orphanage.
