Summer volunteering projects

At Pestalozzi we believe in the importance of giving back, and that’s why we like our students to do the same. During the summer months, whilst they are back home, we encourage them to volunteer at various organisations so they can put to good use the skills they have learned here at the International village.

Last summer many of the students were busy volunteering at organisations close to their hearts; below is a flavour of what they got up in the summer of 2017:
