By Love Serve is at the heart of all we do at St Cuthbert’s, in particular our Values programme, which gives all our girls a chance to contribute to their community.

In the Middle School girls take full ownership of their charity projects and have input into the causes supported, which include the Make a Wish Foundation, Women’s Refuge, Middlemore Hospital and The Hearing House.

Bake sales are a hugely popular way to raise funds with Middle School girls, as is the annual social. Students also show their creative streak by hand-sewing teddies for children at Women’s Refuge and pulling together colourfully wacky outfits for Loud Shirt Day.

Services conducted by our Chaplain in the Old Girls’ Chapel also form part of our Values programme and provide an excellent opportunity for our girls to reflect on their charitable endeavours, give thanks and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to live By Love Serve.
