Spotlight on service day and contest winner!
Greetings new students!
This week's blog features our annual Service Day. For the last 3 years, Luther students and staff have undertaken a number of service projects in the spring, collectively known as Service Day. We started Service Day as a way of showing our belief in educating the whole student, and of helping students develop as community-minded citizens.
This year, students came up with a list of over 50 possible service projects to do out in the community (everything from picking up garbage around the neighbourhood to volunteering at seniors homes, to spending a day with an animal rescue organization).
Student were then placed in groups with faculty leaders, and have been planning their service projects for around a month now.
On May 2nd, all service groups will carry out the projects they've planned for the community. Some will leave the school, while others will work in and around the school.
Some examples of projects happening on May 2nd include:
-A book drive
-Visting seniors homes
-Helping with community organizations like Soul's Harbour
-Working with animal rescue organizations
-A battery recycling drive
-Writing letters to military members overseas
-Organizing a welcome barbeque and activities for refugees and new Canadians
Take a look at some photos from past service days:
We believe that service in our community is an excellent example of what we mean by "Quality Education in a Christian Context"
