Iona Presentation College

Iona Care

Service and Giving Back      

Service is a core Presentation value. Inspired by our foundress Venerable Nano Nagle, students are formed through service to be Presentation women of a welcoming heart, who reach out in faith, in a spirit of hospitality, compassion and simplicity to all people.

It is our hope that our compulsory Iona Care Christian Service-Learning Program will provide a range of meaningful service opportunities for our Senior students from Years 7 to 12 and inspire students to really go "one step beyond" as Nano Nagle did when completing her ministry in Ireland. The College has many longstanding partnerships with a range of organisations around Perth and students are encouraged to embrace these opportunities as well as locate service opportunities of unique interest to them.

There are three main phases of the program: 
ONE Iona (Year 7 and 8)
STEP outside Iona (Year 9 and 10)
BEYOND Iona (Year 11 and 12)

Students are issued with an Iona Care Christian Service-Learning Diary in Term 1 each year and are supported in completing their Iona Care hours by College staff before submitting their completed Iona Care Diaries at the end of Term 3.
