SERVICE LEARNING AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP
We emphasise global citizenship and invite our learners to contribute locally and globally in dynamic, responsible and ethical ways.
Developing internationally-minded learners who appreciate and respect the richness of human differences is a core tenet of our rigorous education. As an international community, we ensure that in both our Primary and Secondary Schools, HKA learners have a wealth of opportunities to participate in and grow from service to others. At every stage of their learning journeys, we recognise the importance of nurturing and celebrating the ways in which our students learn about, through and from meaningful action.
LEARNING THROUGH SERVICE
Service invites students to engage with local and global issues in response to an authentic need and to grow in the process.
NURTURING CITIZENS OF THE WORLD
If every individual takes his or her own ‘piece of action’, together these actions will add up to significant change for the planet and for society (Goodall, 2016). By understanding that their actions can make a difference and that they have the power to decide what kind of difference they want to make in their world, HKA students grow as global citizens and contribute to making the world a more just and sustainable place.
