We want our students to make a positive difference in the world. Dulwich College International schools benefit from their geographic diversity and we believe it is our responsibility to respect our host countries and identify opportunities to provide tangible and sustainable support to them.
Our students participate in community projects appropriate for their age, including school sustainability programmes, co-curricular activities, volunteer work and fundraising. Students often lead these initiatives with guidance from our teachers, coming up with their own ideas and plans, and executing them themselves. In the process, they learn social responsibility, leadership and how to care for others, developing an understanding of their role in the school community, the local community and the outside world.
The Dulwich International Schools Foundation (DISF) will help to unite philanthropic programmes across our network of schools, ensuring all students, staff and parents, no matter their location, are encouraged to donate, volunteer and participate in programmes that improve the lives of others. DISF will encourage all our schools to take part in its work, while respecting that each school has its own service projects dedicated to benefit the community or country where they are located.
