Community Involvement Project at RC (CIP)
Robert College aims to provide an education that will help the students become accomplished individuals in every aspect. Our major goal is to ensure that our students grow into responsible citizens, caring for humanity and the environment. With CIP, students will strive to attain these goals while learning through real life experiences.
The Ministry of Education has decided that all students must participate in social service. In accordance with Robert College’s philosophy, and the Ministry’s decision, the school has implemented the Community Involvement Project (CIP) in the 2006/2007 academic year.
The projects in this context include service in various areas, some of which are:
Educational and creative activities at orphanages and public schools [teaching drama, computer skills, creative problem solving, English language, music; helping with SBS (level exam) preparation, etc.];
Assisting handicapped people;
Activities with environmental organizations;
Caring for elderly people in nursing homes.
The program is based on two fundamental principles:
1. CIP relies on the students’ areas of interest and skills, and the purpose is to offer actual service to the community ;
2. Projects are designed by students, individually or in groups. Students are in charge of the preparation and the implementation process under the supervision of a teacher-advisor.
All students participate in social service activities outside of school hours to develop community awareness during their years at Robert College.
