The Service Learning program at Tara creates activities which see students working together to make a positive contribution to their local and wider global community, while at the same time supporting the social and cognitive learning and development of the individual. The girls engage in this program which provides meaningful and appropriate service activities for students to engage in service, which are intentionally linked to the curriculum, so that the service enhances the learning and the learning enhances the service.
Service learning at Tara has very specific aims:
House Service Learning events
Annual sponsorship of Nataly Ortiz through Compassion
Spanish is the second language of the Junior School curriculum. Some years ago, the girls selected Mexico as a country where they would like to make a difference. Through our partnership with Compassion, Nataly and her community are well supported by Tara Junior School. In doing so, the girls of the Junior School have learned much about the lives of children whose circumstances differ from their own. The girls regularly pray for and write to Nataly.
Incidental and authentic student-driven action arising from class units of inquiry
Each unit of inquiry sees the girls learning about globally relevant issues. Taking action in response to their learning is a significant aspect of becoming an educated person.
