I chose to share my ROSE project within an article to not only share the work I have done, but show others the importance of nutrition and compassion. First, however, I have to go back to the beginning.
Rooted in Dominican tradition, and reflecting the school's mission to teach students of all faiths, San Domenico encourages students to become moral thinkers as well as academic achievers. Students apply the values they have learned within the school community and through participation in service learning projects.
The goal of a Dominican education is to inspire our students to correct injustice, to spread peace, to respect and protect all people and all beings, to uphold the values of truth and compassion. Students participate in service trip excursions such as gleaning at an organic farm and volunteering at Homeward Bound.
At San Domenico the values of service and social justice are central to our Dominican mission. All students take the social justice course in their junior year as an Ethics, Philosophy, and World Religions requirement which helps students develop a systemic approach to understanding the social and environmental challenges of our day.
