Service is an integral part of the ICS mission and experience. At ICS students learn how to serve and transform their communities. As students grow in their Christian worldview they learn how to model Christ in creation care and in caring for those in need. Service Learning connects classroom learning with service opportunities in the wider Hong Kong Community and in other countries through weekly service programs and Secondary School events like Week without Walls.
In Hong Kong, all students are able to engage in a wide variety of service opportunities such as: visiting the elderly; feeding the homeless; supporting handicapped people; writing to those in prison, compiling Christmas boxes, and tutoring children from poorer families and minority groups. There are also a number of annual special projects that include Beach Cleanups, visits to Crossroads, Domestic Helper Open Day, and World Vision 30 Hour Famine, to name a few. In the High School, students take on more personal responsibility for leading and developing the service activities through leading these events, the Make a Difference Projects, and service clubs. As the ICS Motto says: ICS = Instruction for Life, Commitment to Christ, and Service to the Community.
