SPON­SOR­SHIP from Mor­ley-based agency Har­courts Ross Realty is help­ing a group of John For­rest Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dents re­alise the trip of a life­time.

Their ser­vice tour, in part­ner­ship with RAW Im­pact (Rais­ing Aware­ness World­wide), will see 15 years 10 and 11 stu­dents ac­com­pa­nied by two teach­ers travel to Cam­bo­dia for 11 days de­part­ing next month.

With an aim to make an im­pact on a Cam­bo­dian fam­ily’s life, the stu­dents will build a bam­boo home with a cor­ru­gated steel roof and as­sist in an agri­cul­tural project such as build­ing a fenced gar­den.

Lead­ing up to the trip, each stu­dent is re­quired to raise $1000 to go to­wards RAW im­pact projects.

Teacher Stephen An­gell said the stu­dents had been hard at work sell­ing choco­lates, hold­ing cake stalls, run­ning sausage siz­zles, or­gan­is­ing a quiz night and seek­ing sup­port from friends and fam­ily on their John For­rest Ev­ery­day Hero fund rais­ing page.

“We are so im­pressed by th­ese stu­dents who are giv­ing up their own time to travel over­seas and build houses for the un­der­priv­i­leged,” Har­courts Ross Realty coowner Paul Ross said.
