Lower School
Student Life

Creativity, Activity, and Service

The Lower School experience also promotes the importance of community and service to others.

Through the Creativity, Activity, and Service Programme, students participate in weekly service and volunteer activities. They may help out at the local animal shelter or retirement home, or engage in activities to help support the ‘Me to We’ programme. Each activity allows them to learn about local and global charitable organizations, and gain a greater understanding of the wider world in which they live.
