Kingsmead College is founded on consideration and care for others. Service is one of the values of the school. The Kingsmead Service department was established to instill and cultivate active citizenship and to enable students to impact their community in a meaningful way.
Service is an expectation at Kingsmead College and the Service department provides opportunities for the students to connect and engage with their community through a programme of community engagement. The Service department’s slogan is Give Without Expecting Reward.
We have a Service programme that has been intentionally curated for our Students to enable them to achieve their Service requirements.
In 2024 we will be launching Service Hours - our own volunteer logging, verification, reporting app. This has been built in close consultation with the Kingsmead App developers – MyAppZone. The school has developed mutually beneficial relationships with non-profit organisations. These relationships provide the social cohesion the school wants to foster and is beneficial for the organisations as well as the students at Kingsmead.
