At the heart of our school welfare programme is Behaviour and Social Graces (BSG) and we give high priority to children’s behaviour and set aside time to teach them about the importance of good manners and proper social conduct.
Our students are given opportunities throughout the school year to take part in local projects and to be involved in events that allow them to make friends and give support in the local community. All students are required to take Personal, Social, Health Education (PHSE) class, which has a a number of sessions to teach students how they can help the people around them.
In Key Stage 4, students taking the International Award complete the Service component which can include community service projects, conservation work, voluntary service in hospitals or homes, or can include specialise training in areas like lifesaving and first aid.
Students studying for their IB Diploma must complete the CAS programme (Creative, Action, Service) where Service activities are about giving something back to the local community. A student's service might involve participating in environmental clean-up campaigns or helping disadvantaged members of the community such as the disabled or the elderly.
We believe our students will gain a great deal from giving their time to help others.
