Year 9 Kids Giving Back

Year 9 IGS students recently participated in a Service Learning Program that supports the creation of the next generation of generosity through the school curriculum.

On Friday 25 November, Year 9 students were able to “give back” through a meaningful session of educating, acting and reflecting on the significance of helping those in need.

The Kids Giving Back program offered age-appropriate content and open discussions.

Students learnt about homelessness and vulnerability while challenging the stigmas and stereotypes of what a homeless person looks like.

Students then participated in the act of giving back by creating various items that contribute towards Helpful Hampers.

Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities.
