Community Benefit

One of the College’s key aims is ‘to instil traditional Christian values, manners and a strong sense of service to others to enable our pupils to live lives that matter’.

Contributions to and involvement with both the island and international communities remain as important to College life today as they were when the College was established as a Christian foundation in 1563.

As part of the weekly timetable, ‘service’ is an important element of most Friday afternoon activities for all pupils in Year 10 and above. However, the extent of the College’s community involvement is far wider than just this regular slot in the week. Among a multitude of examples are:

  • CCF involvement in public ceremonies and parades;
  • extensive fundraising for charities, both local and international;
  • our choir singing for audiences around the island;
  • the Gatehouse Gallery showcasing local art;
  • the annual Kenya trip in February to support the Turi children’s project.

A fuller list is available in our Community Statement.

Elizabeth College challenges its pupils to get involved in at least one regular activity which supports the wider community – this could be through a College activity or an additional activity which pupils volunteer for outside College. Getting more involved in the community helps other people – often people less fortunate than ourselves. It also helps pupils educationally in terms of extending their responsibilities, practically in terms of experience for their career profile and also to feel better about themselves as people.
