Service As Action

Service As Action (SA) is doing something to help make the world a better, more peaceful place! Service As Action is part of being a Middle Years Programme (MYP) student.  Even more importantly, it is part of being a caring, responsible member of your school, local and global communities. In the MYP, service as action starts in the classroom and extends beyond it, requiring you to take an active part in the communities you are a part of. At Walker, the expectation is:
  • Year 1 (6th grade) students will complete 5 hours of service
    • National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) members must complete 10 hours 
  • Year 2 (7th grade) students will complete 8 hours of service
    • National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) members must complete 10 hours
  • Year 3 (8th grade) students will complete 10 hours of service + the required Community Project.

The reflection link will close on the last day of school, Friday May 24 at 3:00pm. We will be updating the form with the NEW IBO creative demonstration requirement and reopening the link in August. Students that complete SA hours over the summer can complete the online reflection in August. We will be updating the "Service As Action Presentation for Students" that will be shared during the first week of school!
