Service

Mentone Grammar's Social Service pledge is to educate and encourage lifelong empathy and action.

Mentone Grammar is an Anglican school which welcomes students of all backgrounds and religious beliefs. We nurture and develop the spiritual dimension of our students through our Chapel program and Religious Education lessons. Our Chaplains are part of our Wellbeing team and provide pastoral care for students and staff.

As an Anglican School, Mentone Grammar seeks to provide its students with opportunities and experiences that enable them to look beyond their own concerns and engage with the needs of others. Through the School’s Social Service Program, students are encouraged to develop an awareness of the needs of others and empowered to find ways to help disadvantaged members of the community. This whole School program fosters relevant and age appropriate engagement at the local, national and international level. 

Mentone Grammar seeks to build connections with groups and organisations that help those in need. We support our local community and organisations that have a focus on education and the needs of young people at the national and international level. In response to times of need, the program also helps facilitate students’ desire to give by channelling funds and resources to the appropriate organisations.  

Social Service

The program has at its heart the School’s value of service and also helps to foster our core values of respect, endeavour, integrity and caring. Through the School’s Social Service Program our School motto ‘by work and with honour’ is lived out in the lives of our young people. There can be no more honourable labour than that which seeks to bring comfort to those in need. Through the opportunities and experiences of this program, students are encouraged to expand their horizon of care and to develop a lifelong passion for serving others.

“As a Social Service Committee, we have worked hard to establish a community here at Mentone Grammar that is committed to thinking and acting to help others.”
