Service Learning


Service Learning at Scots encourages, facilitates and celebrates student involvement in community service initiatives. Service Learning croppedStrengthening the link between service in the community and learning in the classroom builds capacity in students. It helps them become ethical, inclusive and compassionate global citizens.

Scots students can become involved with Service Learning locally, nationally and internationally. As well as team-based projects, Scots also encourages individual students’ initiatives. Events are often run by student leaders and reflect the variety of ethical interests within the student body. We support a variety of local and national charitable organisations and have forged global links, such as our relationship and visits to a school in Vanuatu. We celebrate and acknowledge the work of our students, whilst understanding that their contribution is a selfless one that is a reward of itself.

Within our Service Learning program, students can expect to witness the Scots DNA in action. They will participate in projects that involve them in a range of real life experiences, they will strengthen connections with their classroom learning and they will develop leadership skills that will enable them to contribute far beyond their time in the Scots blazer.
