Community service is considered an integral part of the academic program at AIA starting from childhood. Serving the community and the environment is constantly incorporated into the Learning Units in all subjects. Community service provides opportunities for students to think about their own values and actions, to understand the connection between their lives and their environment, and to develop a sense of civic duty. It also encourages students to evaluate their commitment to helping others particularly those most in need. All IB programs have community service components and for a student to obtain the IB Diploma, he/ she must serve the community for a certain number of hours. Community service can take several forms, but it must be meaningful in the sense that it meets a real need in the community and that it has a clear and long-term impact. At the KG, we engage children in such activities on campus with the help of their teachers.
