Middle School Service

The service program at the Middle School has a core goal of making a difference by improving the quality of life and the environment in our local and global communities. The aim is to foster a culture of service, citizenship and responsibility in all members of the SMUS community.

Community is a major focus at the Middle School and within the Student Council. The Middle School's strong sense of community has made our students value respect, kindness and  understanding.

A number of service events are planned by the Student Council, or within the Middle School as a whole. These include:

  • service days
  • fundraising dances
  • Christmas hampers
  • the Peanut Butter Blitz

Middle School students also participate in larger community events, including:

  • Run for the Cure (Breast Cancer Foundation)
  • the Terry Fox Run
  • the Cops for Cancer head shave (Canadian Cancer Society)
  • UNICEF collection at Halloween
  • the St. Patrick’s Day Fun Run (Big Brothers and Big Sisters Victoria)
  • Jeans Day (BC Children’s Hospital)
  • Swimathon (Victoria Hospice Society)
  • the World Partnership Walk (Aga Khan Foundation)
