As well as recording the activity, students reflect on how this activity has helped them to understand, develop or deepen the particular virtue they are focusing on. By reflecting on how students are developing their virtues, students are contributing to their own character development and recognising the true happiness (eudaimonia) that comes from being of service to others.
All students are expected to record a minimum of two Serviam Passport entries per half term and this data is analysed by form tutors, Heads of Year and the Assistant Headteacher for Catholic Ethos to ensure all students participate in the wider life of the school to develop their gifts and talents as well contribute to the Common Good.
Students’ contribution to the ethos of the school and development of serviam is recognised and celebrated regularly in school:
Joining in the enrichment activities is part of the ethos of the Ursuline. The more your daughter participates and gives of herself, the happier and more successful she will be at school. Whatever your daughter’s interests, she will find the opportunity to develop her talents and confidence through our Ursuline Enrichment programme.
Additionally, being involved in these activities will contribute to the schools’ house system and earn points towards the house cup. We believe that residential trips truly add to a students life. Our expectation is that all student’s will take part in an activity outside of the classroom. These experiences will enrich their lives, improve their skills and help them to enjoy school life to the full.
