Branksome Hall Asia is the only all IB World international school on Jeju Island, with a mission to ‘challenge and inspire students to love learning and to shape a better world’. We believe that this can only be truly achieved through Service.
Branksome Hall Asia’s signature Service Learning program educates students about effective and meaningful service using the Cathryn Berger Service Learning method. Student-led initiatives are encouraged and supported through supervision, and we are very proud of the positive impact our students are having within our local, national and international communities.
We know that amazing initiatives are happening in your school too and understand the impact that like-minded individuals can have when they work together. Therefore, we warmly invite you to come and ‘celebrate and collaborate’ with us, on the service initiatives that you have individually innovated, in our annual Service Fair.
Our Service Fair will provide students in schools all over South Korea with a chance to meet other like-minded students and NGO’s that can help take their Service projects and/or initiatives to the next level. Come and join us!
To be eligible for entry you must:
- Be a student in Middle School or Senior School OR Be a parent group with members who are parents of Middle School or Senior

Junior School students are welcome to present their service projects at the Service Fair this year but will not be entered in the contest stage. A new, Junior School, student category will be added in the 2021 Service Fair.

The 2nd Annual World University Fair
ACT x Branksome Hall Asia

The fair was set to take place on Sunday, September 29th, 2019 between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. in the Ice Rink building at Branksome Hall Asia.
Students from our neighboring GEC schools attended this event. Branksome Hall Asia hosted a preACT assessment session on Saturday, September 28th, 2019.
Empty Bowls Dinner Night
Food Donors for Empty Bowls Dinner Night:
Parents have traditionally supported this event by donating home-made food, pastries, rice cake, bread, and cookies. Food donors will receive a free ticket to the event. Please support us in continuing this tradition.
Plaid Tidings is currently one of our biggest community events, introduced by a former teacher Angela Lau back in 2014, who was also a student of Branksome Hall Canada where it originated from. Over the past 6 years alot of support has been provided by not only parents but also staff, faculty and students.
Traditionally, the funds raised from a serial of Plaid Tidings supported Moseulpo Children Center under BHA Oulim Project (2015), VEX robotics, JS Class Library Support (2016), a student international service project “Paradigm (2017) and many other initiatives at Branksome Hall Asia. As funds have been returned to the local community, and projects initiated at the school, all the contributions collected from Plaid Tidings 2019 will go to Branksome Hall Asia initiatives in order to support a local charity, or local and international communities and managed under the name of “Plaid Tidings 2019 Funds”. All the expenditures regarding Plaid Tidings 2019 Funds will be transparently shared with parents via an official school channel.
We are excited to once again present Plaid Tidings, and hope it is a fun and enjoyable event where everyone can celebrate with family and friends.
Branksome Hall Asia is very grateful for the continued support of our parents and the school community.
