SENIOR MERCY WORKS

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
The Senior Mercy Works Program expects that all Year 11 and 12 students complete at least 20 hours for each of the two years while studying their senior certificates at the College. Therefore, a minimum of 40 hours of community service is required to graduate from the College. Each year the 20 hours of community service must be completed before to the completion of Term Four of that year. It is preferable that Year 12 students complete their community service hours before the start of Semester Two.
 
The College will supply senior students with an introductory letter for not-for-profit organisations to explain the requirements and expectations of its community service program at the start of the school year. Students should seek approval for community service placements from the Faith & Mission Leader prior to commencing any volunteer work.

Senior students are required to maintain an official journal and logbook as evidence of completed community service hours. This logbook and journal can be downloaded from the College’s intranet or the document page on this website.
