What do you get in return for doing good?
It might not advance your career, make you famous or any richer. You might still be where you were and anonymous to the rest. But what you do receive in return are emotions. You get to witness gratitude, appreciation, love and achieve a deeper understanding of how this world can be a better place because of you.
Champion of Good is a title bestowed upon an individual, group, institution or organization by Islanders Education that goes beyond their call of duty or mandate to contribute ever so generously and voluntarily to the improvement of education.
How to become a Champion
It could be as simple as sharing a valued experience, conducting a workshop, making a donation to improve the welfare, wellbeing and development of students, teachers, parents or the school.
