As our girls progress through their Saint Kentigern schooling, service opportunities at both school and community level abound.
They are encouraged to become involved with global projects such as World Vision’s 20 or 40 Hour Famine and Sponsor a Child; to contribute to food banks; to understand the purpose and end result of Chapel offerings; and to particularly understand the significance of the Sharing Shed and the community links it forges.
However, service does not always have to be about big issues; it can be acts of kindness, consideration and compassion in the classroom, in the playground, on the sports field, or at home.
It is these little acts of service, encouraged at an early age, that build a foundation for moral reasoning later in life.
Service learning allows students to discover ‘their best selves’ and develop lifelong habits.
