An important way in which the school seeks to foster a sense of social responsibility is in the 1-week service project undertaken by JS3 students in July and the 3-week project by SS2 students during the long vacation. The service activity is done in the student’s home area in an appropriate service site e.g. free clinics/hospitals run by government or NGOs orphanages, old people’s homes, homes for the mentally or physically disabled, reading support classes, etc. The project must be done on a daily basis 5 days each week and is consolidated with a daily diary report and reflection at the end of the service period.
The aim of the service project is to help our students understand and identify with those living on the margins of society and to realise that even the effort of a single individual can make a difference in the lives of the sick, the poor and the disadvantaged.
