In the spirit of our Presentation ethos, girls at Iona are encouraged to willingly give their time helping others. Students who actively participate in ‘giving back’ to others, develop an understanding of the wider world and the role they can play to help those less fortunate than themselves. Active citizenship is encouraged by participating in one or more of the many service groups offered at the College.

Service Groups are run at Iona during lunchtimes as a part of the co-curricular program. The aim with these groups is to build awareness, understanding and empathy amongst the greater student population. Here, students are also given the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from different organisations as well as hearing from our own Presentation Sisters.

Some of the many and varied service groups that students can enter into are:

  • Community Cook Up
  • Enviro Group
  • Young Vinnies
  • Young Pressies
