- Out of our comfort zone -
Voluntary Action has a very positive impact in two ways: firstly, pupils give something back to the local community; and secondly, it helps pupils become responsible, aware and compassionate.
Those who are new to Voluntary Action follow a six-week training programme, where they learn how to deal with situations that might be new to them outside the school environment, have a first-aid refresher and learn how to communicate appropriately with the people they might meet in their activities.
Pupils generally remain with the same placement from October until Easter, although they can change as they progress up the School.
Choice of service is wide. Take a look here.
