Community Service is an integral part of student learning at OSC. As global citizens students are more aware of issues which call for more participation in not only understanding but contributing in numerous ways. The aim of community service is for students to learn and address these issues whilst contributing to the betterment of the community as well as themselves.
OSC is recognized around the international schools for the services that we are involved in. At present we are working with 11 organizations and working with different sections of the community. The projects that we are involved in are listed below.
Our goal this year is to make service learning more relevant and part of the classroom education. This will make service learning a more effective learning experience and have an overall impact on the cumulative experience on both those who are involved in serving and those who are served.
