'How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.'

 Anne Frank

Service is helping anyone and everyone without expecting any reward.  When we help the people around us, it is good for everyone in the community, but it may not always be easy or fun for us (but we often feel good about it later!). 
Service means looking for things that you can do to help other people and make things better for everyone else.  Instead of thinking ‘that’s not my job’ think of all the things you can do to help others.  Putting other people’s needs before your own, even when you are very tired or busy makes the world a much nicer place to live in.
We can also refer to service as: lending a helping hand; doing good deeds without expecting rewards or prizes.
The opposite of service is not helping others and only doing things for yourself. 


I serve my class by being tidy and orderly.

Year 1

I can serve others by doing my bit to care for the environment.

Year 2

Serving others means putting them before ourselves, even if we're tired or busy.
