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.
