A few things about Service Activities for G6-9

Doing Service is a great thing. The fact that so many NIS students want to do Service is also a great thing. Here are a few notes that will make a great thing even greater.

– we now use the term ‘Service Learning’ or simply ‘Service’. No more saying Community and Service, that is so old fashion!

– even more old fashion is saying ‘Points’, we don’t use the term points any more we now think about ‘Outcomes’.

– There are seven Service Learning Outcomes. Your Advisory teacher has mentioned them, hasn’t she/he? Ask to see them again!

– Before you do a Service Activity think of which Outcome you will be able to achieve by doing it. This also applies when you sign up to help run a School activity e.g. Pfrang Day, Sports Event, Spring Fun Day etc.

Giving a Service by helping is important but being clear about which Outcome you will achieve is equally or even more important.

Think Service, Think Outcomes!

NIS 加油, Service 加油!
