Eremeran Hills

One of the main aims of Eremeran is to nurture, from a young age, a culture of service and awareness of the needs of others. The opportunity of making a difference, no matter how small, in the life of another, enables young people to acquire invaluable life skills and mature in their understanding of the world. Eremeran offers regular volunteering opportunities as well as Service Projects and has recently partnered with Reledev in September 2019.

Service Projects Abroad 

In the past, during the school holidays, Eremeran organises longer service projects in rural Australia or overseas. They organise local projects for the younger grades. As the girls grow in experience, they invite them to attend interstate projects in cities like Brisbane, Melbourne and Tasmania, and international projects in countries like New Zealand, the Philippines and Mexico.

Every participant completes an online application form and has an interview to discuss the demands of the project. Training sessions are designed to help them prepare for the project and get the most out of their experience. For enquiries email

Montgrove College

Service Project to the Central Coast

Montgrove College has been running service projects on the Central Coast for Year 10 students to allow them to help people, the local community and the environment around Woy Woy on the Central Coast. The students have previously cleaned, removed graffiti, accompanied the elderly, removed weeds and made Christmas cards, and generally had a great time bonding with each other.

Students often find the experience uplifting, particularly how they come to appreciate other people outside of their usual circle of acquaintances. Community Service is essentially a way of genuinely connecting with others and is fostered at Montgrove. The students often reflect that is easier to appreciate other people for who they are when you have an attitude of giving. We naturally turn our focus away from ourselves when we have a mindset of serving, and this helps us to be more open to the people around us.
