Volunteering at Mayfield
Actions not Words, inspired by the ethos of Cornelia Connelly where love is shown through action, is a community service program for girls primarily in Year 12 and 13 but extending through to all year groups in a variety of ways.
In Year 12 it is expected that every girl will take part in the program; in Year 13 girls often choose to continue their placement or take on a new one.
Each week participants of the scheme go out into the community to work on a variety of placements during the school day, during evenings or weekends depending on the pupil's academic timetable. On some placements pupils go out in a group with a member of staff, on others they may go alone.
