Social Service Learning

The Oxley College Service Learning vision is for our students to support local, national and international communities and make a difference to the lives of others.

Students are fortunate to attend Oxley College and we believe our students should give their time, energy and skills to build a better future. Service Learning is not only about giving money and donations it is about investing time in helping those less fortunate than themselves and displaying a true sense of compassion towards others.

During their time at the College our students will be exposed to different Service Learning opportunities in both the Junior and Senior Schools.

Year 1
Harbison Care – Regular visits to our classroom where our Senior Citizens are part of the lesson and contribute to discussions and activities.

Year 6
KIVA – Year 6 have each raised $25 to loan to Micro Finance Companies around the world. These loans allow people in third world countries to become self sufficient while also repaying the loan.

Year 7
Feeding  the Homeless
– Year 7 are rostered on to shop, prepare and cook a meal such as a casserole to bring to the college each week. Members of the local Uniting Church collect five meals per week and distribute to people in need in the local area.
