Year 10 boys are fast approaching their upcoming Service Week that begins on Monday, 20 November through to Friday, 24 November 2023. We have over 200 students who will be representing Waverley College and actively involved in volunteering in their local community.
Students have elected to spend their service helping out in a wide variety of community services and not-for-profit organisations, working alongside the disadvantaged, elderly, disabled, children and family support services.
Just a selection of these services include; Thread Together, Re-love, Matthew Talbot Hostel, Illowra Aged Care, Ronald Coleman Lodge, Our Big Kitchen, the Exodus Foundation, Windgap Foundation, The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul charity stores, St Gabriel’s School, Jarjum College and numerous preschools and primary schools in the local area and further afield across Sydney.
Students are expected to wear their school sports uniform unless otherwise stated. All students will be making their own way to their placement and will make their own way home again. Service hours each day will vary depending on each organisation and teachers are allocated to check on students throughout the week.
*If for any reason your son cannot attend, is sick or absent on any day, please inform the College and also contact his organisation that morning.
We look forward to all students enjoying a very memorable Service Week, making a contribution to their community, in addition to their own personal growth and learning.
