Girls from years 11 – 13 are able to join the Voluntary Service Unit (VSU) in school. It is a totally voluntary organisation but it is enormously popular with all of the girls. There are over 140 girls involved in the group and they carry out a range of activities. Some of the girls visit the elderly in their own homes whilst others visit local nursing homes and day care centres. Many of the other girls are involved with helping younger pupils at Fairfield School and also Our Lady’s Convent School. They are especially useful when listening to them read and also with art and craft activities.
The Voluntary Service Unit aims:
The Voluntary Service Unit gives an opportunity for the students to give something of themselves to a range of people, both young and old, and it is found to be most rewarding for all concerned.
