Service-Learning and Community Engagement (S-LCE) recognises that schools are shaped by their context and have multiple community connections (local, church, global). This unit explores these connections. The theological topics include aspects of creation and ongoing creation, focusing on community, reciprocity and relationships.
The overarching question ‘Who is my neighbour?’ challenges students to examine schools’ existing community connections as well as to identify the skills and attributes required for all to be active learners and respectful social and environmental contributors.
