VolunteeringService in the community

Our community project in Swaziland - where we were helping to build a school - was one of the most rewarding parts of the trip. It was great to work together to mix cement and lay bricks and to do something that made a difference to village life..

We have a long tradition of pupils taking part in community service throughout the school years, but particularly in Years 9 upwards. Volunteering and working on community projects is an important aspect of the Duke of Edinburgh awards and girls volunteer with local schools, charitable organisations and community projects for a minimum of one term but many continue for much longer.
