Educating future leaders

Social Development


All students and staff work with a social development organisation in one of our partner communities and there are eight scheduled visits during the year.

Activities for social development visits vary from games, story-telling, painting and singing with young children, to performances, singing, talking and listening to the tales and wisdom of the older seniors.
