Celebrating Volunteers Event
Celebrating Volunteering at St Alban's
At St Alban’s we aim to provide the opportunity for our students to develop their individual talents and build a strong foundation for their future.
The school places great importance on its close relationships with voluntary organisations such as CAFOD and L’Arche and many of our past and current staff and students have offered their time and valuable support to these organisations.
Giving of our time and skills is a way to show love and compassion to others, and make ourselves better people, with a greater understanding of the world around us.
To celebrate volunteering on Tuesday 13th December St Alban’s will be hosting a Volunteer Marketplace. We have over 15 local and national charities coming into our school to showcase the volunteering opportunities on offer. During the day all Sixth Form students will visit the event and talk with our guests and at lunchtime all students are invited to come join the event during lunch time.
People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others, but also in giving of time and energy students can also get something back; maybe to build a CV, personal statement or to explore a career. The amazing staff at St Alban’s have created a short video to showcase the volunteering they are already involved in (you can find it on our school website) and we hope our volunteer day will spotlight volunteer opportunities that our students can get involved in both now and in the future.
