Service and Action
Students from Grades 6 - 10 take part in Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) and Service and Action (SaA) throughout the year. It is compulsory for students to be part of a CCA on Monday's and a SaA on Wednesday's.
Service and Action at Carmel School allows students to be engaged in Local, International and Jewish Service opportunities. When our students returned from their E-Learning, we trialed out a Wellness Workshop which was very successful. It allowed students to be part of a in-house service programme as well as develop an understanding of how to reflect on their experience.
Students from Grades 6 through 10 meet in their Service-based programmes to plan fund-raising strategies and events. as part of the IB MYP. Known as Service as Action (SaA), it is undertaken every Wednesday afternoon. This is an entirely student-driven enterprise, with the support offered from teachers and each group's chosen Non-Governmental Body.
At the beginning of the academic year, students set out their goals use Managebac to track and document their progress throughout the year. SaA is great preparation for the students as they continue on to the IB Diploma Programme after MYP, where a core component is Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS).
