JCG Serves

JCG Serves is the expectation that all students at JCG serve their community, whether that is within JCG, the island of Jersey or the world. Anything we do for the benefit of others which we are not compelled to do, and for which we receive no payment, is service. This scheme helps students achieve balance in their school life and gives our students the opportunity to use their skills beyond the classroom to benefit others. 

At the end of each year, certificates are awarded to recognise a student's service to the community.
