SaA in EISB

Service as Action is often overlooked and seen as a burden for the student because of the time that a student should spend on working on it. However, SaA is one of the major parts of the IB system for the following reasons:

  • It helps the students learn how to become more aware of their strengths and areas for growth (challenge)
  • It helps the students learn how to discuss, evaluate and plan student-initiated activities (initiative)
  • It helps the students learn how to persevere in action (perseverance)
  • It helps the students learn how to work collaboratively with others (collaboration)
  • It helps the students learn how to undertake challenges that develop new skills (new skills)
  • It helps the students learn how to raise awareness and understanding of culture, intercultural understanding and international mindedness (awareness & global value)
  • It helps the students learn how to consider the ethical implications of their actions (ethics)

As the students progress through the MYP system they become more aware of the mentioned reasons. With that, the student’s perspective on SaA changes and they start to enjoy the time spent on SaA.

Here are some examples of SaA projects that the students have achieved so far:

  • IWC Christmas Bazaar 
  • School events 
  • Culture weeks
  • Bake sale
  • School clubs
  • Out of school trainings
  • Talent show
