Service as Action (MYP)

 

Service as Action in the IB Middle Years Programme 

The IB MYP empowers students to participate in service within the community. Our students take part in the BSJ Service as Action programme throughout MYP 1-3  where they experience the value of community work in the residential trips they take and in the work they do with the different organisations our school is involved with.  

The BSJ Service as Action programme culminates in MYP 3 with the community project.  The community project focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The community project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, the community project engages in a sustained, in depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community.
