Community Service Program
This program helps High School students to focus on four significant areas of life for their personal growth and development.
Promotion of Life
Students will be able to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their community, and society in matters of promoting and protecting life. This initial stage helps students extend classroom-learning experiences into practical situations.
Health and Wellness
Students will be able to take initiative, work as a team, and demonstrate their abilities to promote health and wellness in the school and beyond. This area focuses on physical activities or exercises that will give students time to develop their motor skills and other aspects of fitness.
Environmental Awareness and Care
Students will be able to plan out projects and activities that promote environmental awareness and care. This area focuses on the advocacy of the school as an environment-friendly place.
Language Literacy and Education
Students will increase their civic participation in the field of education by sharing their knowledge and skills, particularly with those who would like to learn new languages and improve their academic performance.
Students will attend an hour per week of community service within the school campus.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 25 community service hours outside the school for each year of High School (Grades 9 to 12).
Students must document their hours of service as part of their yearly report.
Before starting any community service activity, students must obtain the approval of the Directress/Vice Principal and the Community Service Coordinator.
Students who do not complete the mandatory hours of Community Service will have the missing hours added to the following year.
