One of the Areas of Interaction of the MYP is Community and Service. DCI students will engage in ongoing and meaningful service activities that focus primarily on environmental stewardship and social justice. Community and Service activities seek to help students understand
- How do we live in relation to others?
- How can I contribute to the community?
- How can I help others?
Community and service starts in the classroom and extends beyond it, requiring students to take an active part in the communities in which they live.
Giving importance to the sense of community throughout the programme encourages responsible citizenship as it seeks to deepen the adolescent’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them. The emphasis is on developing community awareness and concern, and the skills needed to make an effective contribution to society.
As part of the MYP, students engage in a Personal Project in Grade 10.
