Projects Abroad Movies, BBQ’s and Hard Work

We can’t believe it is only 8 weeks until we take off on our amazing adventure to Camboida. The staff and students working on the project are getting excited and working hard towards the finish line. The group which consist of 15 students, 3 staff and 5 volunteers have been busy organising and running fundraising events to support the project. Our amazing year 12 students Beccy and Jake organised a Movie Night showing Transformers 4 at Marion which raised $1200! Local businesses and community members supported the group with donations for a raffle and we were blown away by the support of our community with 160 tickets sold to students, staff, parents, friends and family! 

The team and extra volunteers ran a Bunning’s BBQ at Noarlunga raising $1800. All of the students worked extremely hard on the day and the staff from Wirreanda rolled up their sleeves to support the group. Bruce’s Meats at Mitcham helped us with extremely generous donation of sausages, which received rave reviews. We cannot thank them enough for their ongoing support.

Each day we get excited to read updates from the school we are working with on Facebook, it has really helped us to remember what children and teachers have to endure to have an education in Cambodia. We can’t wait to go over and build a new kindy room for the children and their teachers.
