Community Service & Outreach Activities

Due to the importance it has for the development of responsibility in general and, in particular, of social responsibility, giving service to the community is a very valuable school policy. Thus, the different grades, under the organization and supervision of the teachers responsible for each classroom, and the coordination of the Character Education Department, are committed to developing at least one social activity per year. Each member of the staff assigned to the Human Resources Department, also carries out an annual activity.

Fund-raising

Students work very hard in fund-raising community service projects.

Students choose the social service that they decide to work for.
