Year 11 and 12 students from Trinity Grammar School, dedicated themselves to providing service to those most in need, as part of Trinity’s annual Service Week programme. One of the beneficiaries was Jervis Bay School whose students revelled in the attention provided by Senior Trinity boys.
Service Week is an initiative of Trinity Grammar School designed to encourage students to consider the impact they can have as both an individual, and as part of the School, on the broader outside community. The programme’s activities serve to raise awareness amongst the boys of the inequalities that may exist outside their own immediate sphere. Activities provide practical hands on experience by allowing boys to work collaboratively alongside a variety of charity groups, community volunteers and schools.
During the week-long annual programme, Year 11 and 12 students commit to a variety of activities such as feeding the homeless, serving the elderly, assisting to educate young people, and supporting charity centres and community support initiatives.
At Jervis Bay School, located near Nowra on the NSW South Coast, two Trinity students were placed in each of the four classes to assist students one-on-one and in small groups. Although they concentrated mainly on literacy and numeracy, the Trinity boys also helped Jervis Bay students prepare meals for family and friends as part of Harmony Day celebrations.
