BEACON COMMUNITY LUNCHEON
Volunteering in a small community has many rewards, and this term, the Year 9 and 10 students experienced what it means to be a volunteer. During the Wellbeing Lesson for each year level, students and teachers would visit the residents at Ridgehaven, meeting up to play board games, play music or just to chat. This was an opportunity for our students to explore career pathways in the health field, but also to become involved in the community through volunteering. In recognition of the ongoing support of the volunteers within the community, the Year 10 Students held a Luncheon at the end of term. The Beacon Leaders chaired the morning tea, with all year 10 students involved in the event. The Luncheon was prepared by the Senior Hospitality students, with an incredible menu of main and desserts to choose from. The success of the Volunteer Program will see this event continue as an important element in the yearly Beacon Program. Congratulations to the students and staff for their commitment and involvement in the Luncheon and a huge thank you to the many volunteers who give up their time to support others, across our community.
