Rethink the challenges and opportunities in international education through social responsibility engagement

Rethink the challenges and opportunities in international education through social responsibility engagement.

At Oakridge International School, Visakhapatnam we encourage students, teachers and school communities to do social good through outreach activities.  “Use your voice for kindness, your ears for compassion, your hands for charity, your mind for truth, and your heart for love.”  By taking action, students at Oakridge see how they can truly “Make a Difference” to our community. Our community outreach programmes aim at supporting students to find their interests and encourage their involvement in the school, local or global community to work towards making the world a better place. Our students develop an increased sense of social responsibility– a global view of society and a heart for ‘giving back’ and helping others. They are provided with an opportunity to apply academic learning to real life events. Some of our activities include 

  • Beach Cleaning:  Students participate in cleaning the beach side of Visakhapatnam to raise awareness about conservation and sustainable usage of oceans, seas, and the marine resources for sustainable development. 
  • Life skills Workshops: Our students visit government schools and conduct workshops for the students there; where our students proactively engage and mentor the children.

Many of our Oakridgers find their passions and interests that may lead to a career choice they may have not considered. Our mission is to help others thrive. Our school has nurtured a close-knit community where our students, parents and teachers feel welcome and involved. We also encourage our schools to be active members of their local neighbourhoods to ensure that the whole community thrives.
