All students at SJI International are actively involved in the Service Learning Programme, from Grade 7 until completion of the IB Diploma. Service Learning enables our students to make a deliberate and explicit connection between serving others and the basic tenet of human development: the formation of character. Our holistic Service Learning Programme expressed through central values unique to SJI International, develops our mission for students to ‘become people of integrity and people for others’.
Service Learning is experiential. There is a process to the learning experience where students are activated, motivated and engaged to make a difference.
