Community Service

A’ohe hana nui ka alu’ia.

No task is too big when done together

‘Olelo No’eau

Participating, learning, leading, developing, and caring are actions that students show when they partake in community service activities.

Many students take the initiative to participate in community services projects such as Hilo downtown clean ups, American Red Cross, Hawaii Food Bank Fish Netting, Angel Tree, Salvation Army Christmas Bell Ringing, Happiness Park Clean-up, Girl’s Day Celebrations and many more.  These service projects allow students to apply the lessons learned in the classroom to real-life situations and experiences.  It gives students the opportunity to work with community members and to learn from their environments.  Giving the students the opportunity to participate in community service projects not only benefits the community, but supports the full development of the student’s character.

We as educators are interested in providing as many opportunities for students to find out what activates their creativity, compassion and interest in their community.   We have witnessed that the development of Kuleana provides the insight for a fulfilling life.
