Students provide public service and volunteer work within a variety of contexts, be it through a service organization, or through independent initiatives of their own. Our school-wide programme whilst contributing to the community allows students to gain credit in the school’s Service Award Scheme, Duke of Edinburgh, and also raises thousands of dollars in the service of local, National and International charitable organisations. We believe that service to others is the embodiment of the values we promote as an institution of both learning and personal growth.
