Community service provides Holy Child students and families the opportunity to collaborate and serve those in need, learn about significant social issues, and build empathy. From Young Falcons to our grade 8, every student is involved in helping others and recognizing the importance of being a global citizen who positively contributes to the earth.
Our community service program is an outgrowth of Goal 4 of the Holy Child Network of Schools Goals: “Holy Child Schools work for Christian principles of justice, peace, and compassion in every facet of life.”
Monthly service projects and activities are organized to bring the needs of the greater community – local, regional, national, and global – to the attention of the students. In addition, Holy Child students frequently initiate service projects that serve current needs of various communities.
