Service Projects

Jesuit education is intended as a preparation for a life of active, social commitment. Students of Jesuit Colleges and thus students of St George’s College are encouraged to understand their own ‘place’ in the world, in terms of educational and socio-economic opportunities, and to use these opportunities in compassionate service of others, especially those whose opportunities have been less than theirs or who are the victims of poverty and injustice.

The 3 week ‘Service Projects’ that our Lower Sixth students (Year 12) embark on exposes them to the wider world of the underprivileged. The mission of the Church and in turn the mission of Jesuit schools is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and in this way to build the Kingdom, by serving and humanising the world and giving glory to God. The community outside the College gates needs our service, our witness and our active participation so that Christ may be present in the world.

The ‘Lenten Campaign’ which is a follow on from the ‘Service Projects’, encourages the whole College to participate in the upliftment of each of the Agencies our senior students serve. The Lenten Campaign runs for the duration of the Liturgical Season of Lent annually.

St Ignatius said that ‘Love is shown in deeds’. Religion is deeply personal but not private. Faith which does not expose itself in love for others and the passionate quest for justice lacks authenticity. Jesuit College’s, St George’s College, aim to facilitate the emergence of young men (& women) who will exercise leadership in terms of these values and seek to be agents of change, not more or less passive upholders of the status quo.
