Service Learning at Calvin Christian School
As a school community, our desire is for our students to live out their lives as followers of Christ, both within their local community and in the world. For that reason, we provide opportunities for our students to develop servant leadership, to act with compassion and justice in a world that God loves, and to demonstrate a growing faith in God who enables us to do what we did not think we could do. Below are just a few of the ways we encourage service learning at Calvin Christian School.
At the Elementary Campus:
Service opportunities include:
- Singing at Donwood Manor Personal Care Home
- Preparing Christmas Hampers for the community
- Helping with the Milk Program, Recycling Program, School Patrols, Koats for Kids, etc.
- Book Buddies with younger students
- Kindergarten lunch helpers
At the Collegiate Campus:
Each grade is presented with ways to develop servant leadership. Along with the opportunities listed below, we encourage students to respond if they feel impacted by a need in our community or in the global community.
Students participate in The Transcona Biz Community Garbage Pick Up days.
Grade 9 & 10

Students connect with the Transcona Food Bank and address hunger 10 months of the year by organizing food drives, deliveries and distributing food.
Students participate in the IMPACT trip to Mexico.
Students participate in ICE (Inner City Experience) where they spend a week in Winnipeg’s inner city, guided by Siloam Mission, and are provided with an opportunity to connect with programs that address homelessness in our community.
