Log Your Volunteer Hours
Many students volunteer their time to help others - sometimes in an activity related to school, sometimes outside of school.
If you register on the SVA Award website you can log the hours your spend helping others and earn Bronze, Silver and Gold badges. These awards also can be added to your cv under community involvement.
Ms Meade is the in-school contact so she sees all the hours logged by each student and passes on the badges from SVA.
So don't wait. Do it now!
