FAITH IN ACTION
Today's leaders require more global understanding, emotional intelligence, cooperative ability and an empowering approach. More than knowing how to lead, we want our students to be responsible, positive leaders who consider the interests of others.
Each year, our grade 11 students travel to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, the poorest country in Latin America. There, they meet and work with local children and youth, visit orphanages and rehabilitation centres, and build relationships with local missionaries. By experiencing the conditions of poverty, students gain an awareness that allows them to think critically about the challenges facing another culture.
SCS understands the importance of developing students into leaders as it has a positive impact on developing confidence and communication skills. Developing and encouraging students to voice and share their ideas opens opportunities for them to plan, work, organize and make decisions as part of a team.
Chapel and Worship
Chapel is held weekly for all grades. This exciting time of praise and worship is student-led, and everything from the instruments to the singing comes from the hearts of the students themselves. Engaging messages centered on thematic Bible lessons that include practical life application are an important part of the week. Students lead and serve one another and learn the importance of preparing well to lead well. Learning from each other is a gift!
- Grades K-4 chapel is led by each grade who take turns creating skits and stories to illustrate important lessons as they begin to grapple with what faith really means.
- Our grades 5-8 chapel is specific to the questions and struggles of this age group. Once again, the students prepare lessons and teach each other. Occasionally, a guest speaker attends for a specific topic or discussion to engage the students in a fresh way.
- Our High School chapel includes grades 9-12. This worship team practices many times a week so they can give their very best to the students, chapel guests, and God. Students lead each other in group activities as they get deeper into theological discussions and start to make their faith their own.
