The School's community service programs remain popular and active, with some great options now available for the academic year 2015-16.
THE SERVICE REQUIREMENT
The School maintains a 10-hour community service requirement for all students in Form IV. This program provides a window on existing volunteer work and includes some classroom reflection on the role of service to the community. Independent projects are accepted in fulfillment of the requirement - students can be creative, take some initiative, and put together their own volunteer project or work with friends. The direct service element of the requirement may now be completed in either Form III or Form IV, as best fits a student's schedule.
APPALACHIA SERVICE PROJECT
The School also continues to have outstanding opportunities available to all students interested in community service. As an afternoon co-curricular option, students may pursue an internship in community service, contributing their talents to local agencies as they learn. Students may create their own program or join ongoing partnerships.
