Community Life

Students at TGA had the chance to take an active role in the day-to-day life of their community by participating in various tasks at the cottages. Students took part in preparing some meals for themselves and their classmates, as well as activities such as gardening and landscaping around their cottage homes.

In addition, students were expected to make sure that the common areas of the cottages stayed clean and usable for all. By being responsible for their own personal spaces, TGA students grew in their understanding and appreciation of the larger world.
