Volunteer for the Meet the teachers night 3.0 hrs

I helped out as a volunteer during Meet the parent night last Thursday. We were there from 6-9 and our job was to give parents directions to classrooms and help out in general. I was able to get to talk to some of my classmate's parents and have a fun time! One parent yelled, "ask them for double service hour" every time he passed me, which I thought was hilarious. *wink *wink.


Are the service hours you completed COMPETENCE HOURS (learning about social justice issues) or COURAGE HOURS (direct or indirect service to others)?

COURAGE

Which Gilmour charism did you best live out through your service experience? Please explain.

I think I lived out hospitality best during this service experience. I was able to feel the joy of helping others, I also had a fun time and was able to meet more people. I got to know a lot of the people around me better and I really enjoy doing that. 

Would you try this service experience again? Why or why not?

I would definitely do this again! Standing there for 3 hours was a bit of a pain, but it was totally worth it!!!

Civic engagement team mini retreat 3.0 hrs

The Civil engagement team had a Mini retreat on the 11th of august to plan for the 2021-2022 school year. We talked about possible events that we can do with students at Gilmour, and meeting times for the team. We also played a fun game about ourselves, and the people around us. We each took beads that represents the race of the people that is around us, and In the end we talked about what colors we have in our own bowl and what those colors might mean. It was a good way for us to acknowledge who is around us, and what kind of community we're in!

COMPETENCE

Which Gilmour charism did you best live out through your service experience? Please explain.

I think I lived out inclusiveness throughout the mini-retreat. The mission of the civic engagement team is to "commit to the cultivation and education of inclusive and civic-minded beliefs within the Gilmour community and beyond." What we talked about during the retreat is how that live through that mission during this school year!

Would you try this service experience again? Why or why not?

This service experience, or the retreat I think is essential for the club, since we were able to meet and talk about the plans for the year. The retreat is also a great start for the school year, I would definitely do this again!!! The retreat was definitely fun! We laughed and joked around during it, and had a nice group talk during lunch!
