The Privilege of Giving

"The Privilege of Giving" program is a unique reward system with educational value. When students deserve a reward for their effort, they are rewarded by being given the privilege of helping others in the school building. By using "active learning", we are hoping to instill in our students a love for helping others.

We rethought this method in order to tap into the interests, skills and talents of the students in the class and focus on process over product.
