Service Learning is a dynamic approach that provides opportunities to become active participants in their wider community through hands-on projects. Aligned with the School’s core values, students develop empathy, critical thinking and leadership skills.
Both students and staff are encouraged to participate in various service projects that address the needs of our immediate surroundings. Whether it is volunteering at local shelters, organising food drives or participating in environmental clean-up endeavours, our aim is to instill a sense of social responsibility and empathy in our students while directly contributing to the betterment of our local community.
At St James’ we ask students to raise awareness, drive change and uplift their community through hands-on volunteering. Every student’s dedicated hours count by culminating in Service Colours that recognise a student’s commitment to pursuing knowledge, building empathy, participating in meaningful change and enriching the lives of others while honing essential life skills.
Serve, learn and lead with Service Learning, where collective efforts shape compassionate leaders of tomorrow.
Every year we run the Anglicare Ambassador program, where Year 10 students have the opportunity to become an Anglicare Ambassador. This year our successful applicants were Ruby S, Taiya B and Lincoln M.
Our Ambassadors engage their community, raise awareness about homelessness and support Anglicare WA’s vital work. This program embodies empathy, leadership and social change, fostering compassionate future leaders.
