Giving Service Abroad
July 04, 2018 at 11:17 AM
Earlier this week, 20 Year 8 students from both the Boys’ School and Girls’ School, 20 parents and 4 staff headed to Vanuatu to give service at Macses and Etas Presbyterian Schools. Both schools are severely under-resourced with little furniture in class, no toilets, electricity or running water.
Ahead of the trip, our schools collated and dispatched a container full of school furniture, playground equipment, clothes, shoes, medical equipment, stationery, outdoor furniture, water tanks and two tonnes of cement! Their first job will be to unpack and distribute the contents.
Whilst there, they will be installing solar panels, making incinerators, painting a container café and a host of other jobs. During the October holidays, a further two combined teams from the schools will head to Fiji on service trips.
The College is also sending service teams abroad during July with two Middle College teams heading to Cambodia while the Senior College is sending two teams to Vanuatu, and one to Malawi.
We wish all these students and their supporters well as they learn the hands-on value of service and making new connections abroad.
