Since 1995, a total of over 50,000 hours of voluntary community time has been contributed by MAC students.
We are grateful to the Lottery Grants Board for its ongoing success.
All year 13 students use their time and skills to make a difference in their community.
Students undertake weekly placements and short-term projects in a variety of areas. Some of these are listed here:
helping at preschools and primaries, visiting the elderly, mentoring other students, buddying with students with special needs
volunteering at the library, with theatre costumes, at local events, with fundraising
coaching sports – athletics, swimming, netball, hockey, biking, rubgy, soccer, adaptive skiing and more
planting and conservation projects
teaching technology to seniors
The programme helps uphold the MAC Values of ‘Community and participation for the common good.’
In the words of one Year 13 leaver, “I learned how enjoyable it can be to help others and how grateful people can be for that. I used a broad range of skills in all the different projects and learned a lot.”
