At St Andrew's, we place great value in our students becoming involved in, and giving back to their communities.
Students are presented with an exceptional array of opportunities to advocate for justice, contribute to charity projects and engage in service learning at St Andrew's. Some of the international service and experiential learning opportunities throughout year levels include trips to Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Japan, Spain, Scotland, Bali and Everest Base camp in Nepal.
St Andrew's also places great value in student involvement with local communities. St Andrew's Serves is our key service learning program that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth and civic responsibility that inspires an attitude of empathy and compassion towards all members of our local and wider community. In preparing the next generation of leaders in our society, St Andrew's Serves involves weekly activities including 'backyard blitz', Soup Kitchen, Smith Family Reading Buddies and dune regeneration. Our students are involved in many other service activities throughout the year, including surf lifesaving, musical performances at nursing homes, ANZAC Services and the Duke of Edinburgh.
