Middle School Report
March 3, 2022
by Mr Michael Busscher, Director of the Middle School
The Middle School Community Service Program started for the first time for our Tuesday groups this week with our boys heading out into the Ballarat Community offering their services. Quite possibly, some students don’t realise how important volunteers are to the country and to many organisations. We need for our students to understand that community service is a vital investment in our community and the people who live in it.
Our Middle School students, whilst conducting community service will be provided with the opportunity to try different kinds of work and work environments that they otherwise would likely not be exposed to at such a young age.
The experiences that they gain will also further their resume. A lot of the personal development benefits such as leadership skills and the ability to collaborate with a team, are things that translate well to many future jobs and workplaces.
While completing their community service projects, students develop real-world skills that will help them succeed in the Middle School and beyond. Our students will get the opportunity to develop their skills in the following areas: Leadership, Problem-solving, Collaboration with others, Time Management and Communication.
