Service as action is a vital part of the MYP Programme at Al-Hayat International School (HIS) and is a mandatory requirement for students to complete. It starts in the classroom and extends beyond it, requiring students to take an active part in their surrounding communities. Giving importance to the community dynamic throughout the programme encourages responsible citizenship and deepens the student’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them. The MYP Service as Action Programme provides an avenue for experiential learning through a range of physical, service and community activities.
HIS students are encouraged to make connections between their intellectual and social growth, thereby refining their effective, creative and ethical as well as cognitive development. This is achieved through a process of discovery of self and community, and reflections inside as well as outside the classroom.
