Reaching further: Our school’s community engagement
Our links with our local community are a vital part of our identity as a school. And our mission is to reach as many girls as possible.
This was exemplified during the Covid pandemic when we opened up our outdoor facilities for the benefit of the local community to keep active and connected. From this outreach project, we developed several exciting partnerships with organisations aligned with our ethos of empowering girls and women, including:
Looking beyond the school campus is essential to our
community ethos, whether contributing to the festive decorations in our
local Roseburn community, or raising funds and committing time to
Edinburgh charities through the Youth Philanthropy Initiative Scotland. Our students regularly raise awareness around charitable causes and find innovative ways to raise funds.
Of course, this sense of service goes beyond charitable fundraising to include personal action, particularly around sustainability. Staff and student sustainability groups have led the way on many important habit-changing initiatives such as ‘clothes swaps’ and ‘walk to work’ schemes.
