Nelson Mandela wrote: “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity; it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom”. 

The Social Responsibility programme at Cornwall Hill College is dedicated to providing opportunities for our pupils to step up and show their greatness by attempting to overcome the poverty that is a part of our daily lives. We encourage our pupils to get out into the community and to make a difference through the many different programmes offered by the school which include the Debutantes and Squires, President’s Award, service projects and charity donations. Servant leadership is what we aspire to teach and practise and pupils are encouraged to embrace and become involved in at least one project each year.

The Power of One

I am only one,
But still I am one;
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do
Everything I will not refuse
To do something that
I can do.

Edward E Hale
(1822 – 1909)
