Our College wide approach to Service is centred around Justice for people and the world we live in.

Service at Seymour

Since our foundation in 1922, Crescam Ministrando – I grow by serving, has been our College’s motto. Service is ingrained within the Seymour culture and through various means of community service, donating, fundraising and daily actions of kindness, helping others is second nature for our girls.

From Reception to Year 12, Service Learning is embedded in the Seymour curriculum, informing our approach to teaching and learning.

We encourage our girls to consider that serving others is not just a transactional process, as the personal benefits gained from helping others are vast.

In the Early Years and Junior Years, there is a strong focus on fostering awareness around the needs of others at home and at school, as well as the environment. Our ‘I grow by serving’ subject reinforces these teachings for our Junior Years students, so by the time they reach Middle and Senior Years, our girls take every opportunity serve those around them.

A message from our Crescam Ministrando Captain

Seymour College has truly ignited my passion for service and made me realise the importance of advocacy in raising awareness of important issues.

The college motto, Crescam Ministrando – I grow by serving, is an embodiment of how students strive to make a positive difference in our community. The Junior and Senior school students have engaged in service activities, including participating in the Cancer Council Ponytail Project and collecting donations and raising funds for organisations of UN Women and Backpacks 4 Kids.

Students have also supported and advocated for important causes such as homelessness by participating in the Hutt Street Centre Walk a Mile in my Boots and serving meals at the collective of Mary Magdalene.
