Boys can share their gifts and their privilege by serving others
In the Junior School
One of the aims of this program is to develop a belief in the students that they do have much to offer the wider community, and that their positive contribution can make a difference to individuals and to society.
Each class chooses a welfare agency, charity or project to focus on for the year. The students are encouraged to learn more about the charity, agency or project through research and exploration. The class is then encouraged to raise awareness of their focus in the College community. This initiative is not just about meeting a financial goal. It also allows them to learn about ways to serve others through action and reflection.
In the Senior School
As part of the College’s Service Program in the Senior School, we ask students to complete ten hours of service in Year 7, fifteen hours in Year 8, twenty hours in Year 9, and thirty hours in Year 10/11. We ask for your help in supporting your sons with this experience.
This activity is an important part of the boys’ Jesuit education which aims to form men and women for others who are intellectually competent, faith-filled, open to growth, loving and committed to a faith that does justice. It seeks to help students to realise that talents are gifts to be developed, not for self-satisfaction or self-gain, but rather, with the help of God, for the good of the human community.
