Here at The British School, we are intent on ensuring that our students learn the value of giving back to the community through service learning projects throughout the year.
Our IBDP students are busy ensuring that their CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) projects and plans are complete and lower down the school our students can take part in varied opportunities to volunteer both within the school and within the wider community; an area we want to build on, year on year.
Apart from a desire to make an impact and strengthen local communities, volunteering provides vital opportunities to share expertise and develop leadership skills; the added benefit of meeting new people and sharing, and learning from, new experiences are not to be dismissed.
Last week our student and staff volunteers were hard at work early on Saturday morning making sandwiches to take to the homeless and needy. We thank our generous parents who donated food for this and also the staff and students who offered up a large chunk of their Saturday to make, transport and distribute the food.
Surely there is no better way to spend a Saturday morning?
What can you do to get involved and give something back?
