GEMS (Singapore) is the international school where Community Service and Action are truly woven into everyday life

“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” — Albert Einstein

The mission of the International Baccalaureate is to develop “active, internationally minded, inquiring and compassionate young people” who want to make a difference in the world.

One of the five essential elements that help contribute to this is Action.

A core tenet at GEMS World Academy (Singapore) is the belief that education must extend beyond the intellectual and result in students doing something with what they have learned. Every student at GEMS (Singapore) is encouraged to think about their place in the world, what is happening, and what they can do to contribute to it. What mama wouldn’t want this for her child?

GEMS (Singapore) creates unique opportunities for its students to participate in community service projects to develop leadership and innovative skills and evolve as global citizens. Children learn kindness, respect, and empathy  feelings and emotions that connect them to others. Of course GEMS (Singapore) knows that for students to truly understand these feelings, the students must actually experience them.

This month, for instance, Grade 5 students had an exciting camping adventure at Loola Adventure Resort Bintan. The students had a great chance to develop real-world teamwork skills, showcasing leadership and decision-making through this community service project in which they built a safe water garden for a local family.

“The camp was an absolutely amazing experience for everyone!” one of the students recalled. “We had a lot of fun doing a mud trek and kayaking around the mangroves, in addition to our community service project. We had to work as a team and we felt good doing community service for a family living there.”

This is a prime example of how students can make a difference in the lives of others to make this world a better place. Community service involvement is a real action. Volunteering teaches students compassion and understanding. Through community service, GEMS (Singapore) students learn how to truly make their mark on the global and local community.
