At Bacchus Marsh Grammar we believe that it is important that students learn from the earliest years the value of supporting others who are less fortunate than ourselves or who could benefit from additional assistance. Understanding the need to work at developing a sense of community through active contribution is an important component of educating students for life.
Every year the school is involved in a myriad of activities which have a focus of service that varies from the very local to broader international causes. Some examples of activities students have been involved with in recent times include:
- A local food bank
- Jump Rope for Heart
- Raising money for students at risk in Indonesia, Vietnam and Nepal
In all instances students are taught through their active involvement the importance of giving of time and resources in a way that is both empathetic and non-exploitive.
