SERVICE AS ACTION PROGRAMME
- Understanding the school’s commitment to Action and Service – What is our role? How can we make a difference? Where does this begin?
- Involvement through service – becoming actively involved in the various communities and providing a service to them. A specific set of outcomes (per grade) are developed by the school and must be achieved by the student each year.
- Service as action – the school, through it’s curriculum, develops opportunities for students to take action directly from what is being learnt in the classroom.
With appropriate guidance and support, MYP students should, through their engagement with service as action: become more aware of their own strengths and areas for growth.
- undertake challenges that develop new skills
- discuss, evaluate and plan student-initiated activities
- persevere in action
- work collaboratively with others
- develop international-mindedness through global engagement, multilingualism and intercultural understanding
- consider the ethical implications of their actions.
WHY WE CHOSEN FOR DIERENASIEL CRAILO
Growing up our mom would often foster kittens and nursed very sick street cats back to health. We only ever had rescue animals as pets. When we moved to the Netherlands, our stepfather was involved as a dog walker for Dierenasiel Crailo, when he was younger. This is how we got to know Dierenasyl Crailo. We also walked almost weekly dogs from the shelter before COVID19.
Looking through the service as actions that the school offers and having done some of them in the last years, we wanted to challenge ourselves and do something that we believe in strongly.
