Jun­gle party to sup­port trip

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Jun­gle fever will be hit­ting Co­bram this week­end as part of a spe­cial event to raise money for a stu­dent trip to Sri Lanka.

The group of Moira Shire stu­dents — made up of 12 Year 9 and 10 stu­dents from Co­bram, Nu­murkah and Nathalia sec­ondary col­leges — will em­bark on a 21-day trip to Sri Lanka in Septem­ber as part of Team Moira World Chal­lenge Sri Lanka.

To sup­port the com­mu­nity project phase of their up­com­ing ex­pe­di­tion, the stu­dents will hold a fully su­per­vised un­der-18 youth event on Satur­day night.

The group will tackle a few hik­ing chal­lenges across mixed ter­rain in Sri Lanka, be­fore em­bark­ing on a com­mu­nity project to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity.

It’s the first time schools from the three districts have got to­gether to par­tic­i­pate and the group mem­bers said they were re­ally ex­cited about it, with a few hear­ing re­ally pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ences from fam­ily mem­bers and friends who had pre­vi­ously par­tic­i­pated in a World Chal­lenge trip.

The Jun­gle Party event will be held at St Mar­garet’s Church Hall, Pine St, Co­bram, with a jun­gle theme from 7 pm to 10 pm.

Mu­sic is be­ing co-or­di­nated by the Kelly Broth­ers, with renowned Mel­bourne DJ Press Play the main act.

All monies raised will be used to fund the team’s project work — im­prov­ing and re­sourc­ing a lo­cal com­mu­nity school in the tea plan­ta­tion area of cen­tral Sri Lanka.

En­try is $10 with snacks and drinks avail­able, with the event sup­ported by Co­bram Youth Group.
