Community Service

Community service holds significant importance for both staff and students at St. Stephen's. It is embedded within the curriculum and extra-curricular activities.  The school is committed to ensuring the regular execution of sustainable community service activities, fostering active student involvement, and maintaining strong ties with local, national, and international communities.

Within the Primary division, each year group collaborates with a designated community service partner, engaging in regular activities encompassing not only fundraising but also visits and hands-on participation. In the Secondary School, the Community Service Programme is integrated into the PSHE curriculum, with each year group collaborating with a distinct community partner. An ongoing focus is the integration of community service into academic subjects.

Examples of our partners are Operation Smile, which provides operations to children with cleft palates and other facial deformities, Lopburi HIV Hospice, which provides accommodation and medical care for people suffering from HIV, Second Chance which supports and provides employment for the residents of Khlong Toei slum and The Gift of Happiness who provide Christmas packages for children in the North of Thailand. 

The St. Stephen's enrichment program extends students' community understanding through diverse extracurricular activities. Service clubs, available each term, offer students opportunities to collaborate with charities, organise projects, and contribute to school-wide events and fundraisers. An ongoing initiative involves expanding environmental clubs, with the Eco Committee working to establish Eco Clubs across the school and execute projects for the improvement of the school and local environment.

Two key events are the sponsored Primary Walkathon and Secondary Bikeathon, which raise funds for our community service work. St Stephen’s is proud of our ongoing achievements with our charity partners and we support where we can to provide for others less fortunate than us.
