Year 11 Community Service Starting

Students at Illowra Aged Care

Students at Illowra Aged Care

Serving the community and Social Justice is at the heart of our College and Edmund Rice ethos. We are pleased to once again offer this opportunity to our Year 11 students this year.

Our Year 11 Service Learning Program will begin in Week 3 on Monday, 16 February, with the first team of boys volunteering in our local community, one afternoon after school. 

All Year 11 students are required to nominate two community volunteer placements to attend this year. They attend in a volunteer capacity once per week, over a three-week period. Students nominating to attend Matthew Talbot Hostel will only attend for two weeks. Boys can volunteer at any time throughout Term 1, Term 2 or Term 3.

The program endeavours to provide students with meaningful volunteer experiences and opportunities, where they are able to witness first-hand, the transforming power of being able to make a difference to the lives of another individual in need.

Year 11 Service Spreadsheet

In the first week of school, all boys were given access to the Year 11 Service Spreadsheet to nominate their teams and add their name to an organisation. 

*Parents/Carers: can you please check with your son to learn if he has done this, and enquire where and when he is doing his service?

Prior to attending, students and parents/carers will receive a reminder email from Ms Cooper, Head of Religion, confirming these attendance details. If a student is unable to attend, he is responsible for organising another boy to replace him, and will need to nominate another time slot.  

If your son does not have a placement as yet, could you please remind him to add his name to any of the organisations below.
