School Life

Service

Through Annie Wright's community service programs, students develop the passion to serve and learn that they all have the ability to impact a community. Our programs draw on the and the principles of inquiry and reflection and focus on service learning, with the objective of helping students develop from passive to active participants, to volunteers, to service leaders. Every project, regardless of division, is student-centered and designed to be age appropriate. 
Schoolwide service programming exists in the form of House Cup Challenges, involving food or resource drives for local charities.  Often designed and initiated by students across all four divisions, these “competitions” encourage tie color groups to contribute goods to our broader community.

  • Lower School

    Action is integral to the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) learning process and its overarching goal of international-mindedness. The Lower School curriculum guides students to understand individual and collective action, learning the responsibilities that are associated with being a world citizen and recognizing the benefits of working collaboratively with others. Through this process, students recognize their abilities, competencies and agency in decision making and action.

    Through the different Units of Inquiry (UOI), students engage in age-appropriate projects that inspire students to identify the ways in which they can take personal and collective action as part of their learning, both within and beyond school and in response to local and global challenges and opportunities. These UOI include human bodies, cultural diversity of families, community, cooperation, animal adaptations, compost and food waste, government, and how we express ourselves, among others. Action might come in the form of participation, advocacy, social justice, social entrepreneurship or life choices.
  • Middle School

    The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) philosophy guides the service and leadership programming in the AWS Middle School. A clear scope and sequence has been created that introduces service as action through a variety of activities and volunteer experiences in Grades 6 & 7 and culminates with the Grade 8 Community Project.

    Throughout the regular academic year, students have a variety of opportunities to engage in service. For example, students at all grade levels can elect to participate in a weekly Service Learning Club where they volunteer to support a specific classroom, teacher, or administrator in the school.

    Community Engagement Days occur over two days each year, when all academic classes are suspended, and all the middle school students and faculty are involved. This event connects students with a variety of organizations and experiences, exposing students to direct and indirect service within our school community, the local community, and on a global scale.
