Part of Branksome’s mission is to “shape a better world” and students live this through giving service to others. They enthusiastically commit to caring for others, challenging themselves to support a person or a community.
Junior School 'Together We Can'
When it comes to enthusiastic community service, it’s hard to beat the Junior School girls, who are encouraged to take action based on their learning. The Action Committee is led by Grade 6 students, who are mentored by their teacher sponsors. Together, they explore how they can take action for themselves and their school, how they can take action for their community and how they can take action for their world.
Local Service Learning
We need look no further than our own Toronto community for opportunities to offer service. Local organizations that need caring volunteers seek out Branksome’s students for a wide range of roles, from volunteering in peer math tutoring to Best Buddies and Horizons.
International Service Learning
As a globally minded girls’ school, Branksome Hall values global leadership, not only as an attribute of the 21st century but as an attribute that is integral to our school. Students find many ways to support global projects and assist agencies working throughout the world. Our budding scientists, economists, teachers and doctors use their intellect, emotion and physical strength to help communities and organizations abroad.
Faculty and staff believe in modelling the behaviours we expect from our students, while, at the same time, learning from their example.
