The service program in the Senior School provides the opportunity for every student to become actively involved in and contribute to the greater good. One of our goals is to assist our students to discover and develop talents that may otherwise remain dormant, to enable students to learn about themselves and build skills of communication and collaboration, encourage the willingness to take risks, and to evoke a true sense of compassion.
All senior students participate in service activities and are encouraged to contribute a minimum of 30 hours per year, but many students exceed this requirement as they experience the many benefits of serving others.
The Sr. Service Club, led by our two Service Stewards, meets twice per cycle and offers our students a place to collaborate on student led service initiatives, and to explore local and global service-related topics and themes throughout the year. The club is open to any students in Grades 8-12.
Every year our students join the Junior School students as well as faculty and parents in the Terry Fox Run, which raises funds for cancer research. Hoops For Heart (Heart and Stroke Foundation) has the full participation of our senior student body; and our annual Relay For Life has become our largest student-led charity event - raising over $375,000 for cancer research in just its first four years!
