Beaconhouse Margalla Campus Islamabad promotes and focuses on the importance of community engagement in students. Our school introduced a program two years ago, named Active Creative Engagement (ACE) that validates the maximum involvement of the students in the activities, community engagement being one of the key components, under which they have to complete at least 30 hours of community service and leading up to 150 hours as per the international standards to be eligible to get a certificate.
The purpose of the program is to develop empathy and to address the issues affecting the well-being of the underprivileged people. It is a powerful tool for bringing about environmental and behavioural changes. In the spirit of this program, Beaconhouse signed an MOU with Special Olympics-Pakistan by offering them our purpose-built campus facilities; which includes a sport’s ground, gym and other indoor sports facilities. We are simultaneously running many other community engagement programs such as various food, plantation, cleanliness and clothing drives. All these activities are led by students.
As responsible citizens, it is inculcated and embedded in the curriculum that it is our duty to give back to the community in times of need and natural disasters and our students have always been in the forefront in all such initiatives and contributed in a variety of ways.
