Arrupe Volunteering Award

What is the Arrupe Volunteering Award?

Pedro Arrupe SJ was the Superior General of the Jesuits from 1965-83. He coined the phrase “Men and Women for Others” which sums up so much of what we are about as a school. The Arrupe Award encourages people to take up volunteering opportunities both inside and outside of school. There are three levels of award for 10 hours (Bronze), 50 hours (Silver), or 100 hours (Gold) of volunteering in a 12 month period.

Arrupe Award: Volunteering Opportunities

There are many more opportunities out there, or you can create your own initiative.

Once you have completed 10, 50 or 100 hours of volunteering, please come and speak to Mr Potter in the Chaplaincy with the details of your volunteering work so that you can be officially awarded your bronze, silver or gold “Arrupe Award” certificate.
