Service Learning

Serving others is the heart of Christian education.

We value and embrace the opportunities SPH students have to serve on campus, within their local community, and around the globe. Our mission is to provide holistic and quality education, which leads toward the development of leaders who have the passion to serve Indonesia and beyond.

  • Mission Service Learning (MSL)

Learning Through Helping

Mission Service Learning serves is an important part of our curriculum.

MSL instills an attitude of service while connecting learning with real-world scenarios. The activities enrich the learning experience since students are encouraged to think and act beyond the classroom and into the larger world. Actual community engagement enhances students’ generosity, leadership, critical thinking, and organizational skills, which lead to responsibility, accountability, empathy, and social awareness.

MSL experiences allow students to explore various places, get out of their comfort zone, and serve others in a context completely different from their own. Some MSL locations or destinations include orphanages, homes for disabled children, refugee camps, SLH schools across Indonesia (including Papua), and various countries such as the Philippines and Kenya.

As early as Kindergarten, SPH students are introduced to service learning through various activities, allowing a heart of service to be formed as early as possible.

Our Early Years students are introduced to the concept of serving others and expressing gratitude to their peers and helpers at school.

For Primary School students, service learning is integrated into the teaching and learning process by involving them in events or activities such as field trips or in-house events with SPH’s service partners.

Our older students in the Middle Years and IB Diploma programs participate in MSL activities of national and international scope.
