Community Service

Service Learning/Community Service in the Lower School

Service Learning is an integral part of all IB Programmes and is a feature of the IBPYP. Students have an opportunity to serve in the local and international community by participating in various activities that help and support others and their environments. The emphasis is on developing community awareness and concern, a sense of responsibility, and the skills and attitudes needed to make effective contributions to a global society.

Each year the Student Council chooses charities to support. Recent charities have included The North London Hospice, Wateraid and victims of the Nepalese earthquakes. Some of these good causes have come about through the international connections and experiences of Dwight families.
