Set­ting sail for the kids of Cam­bo­dia

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

STU­DENTS from Christ Church Gram­mar School (CCGS) and St Mary’s Angli­can School for Girls are set­ting sail to raise money for the Cam­bo­dian Chil­dren’s Fund.

A sail­ing day, hosted by the Year 11 and 12 stu­dents and ac­cred­ited sail­ing coaches, will run over four days from Tues­day, Septem­ber 30 at the Perth Fly­ing Squadron Yacht Club.

All pro­ceeds will go to­wards the char­ity.

CCGS Ser­vice Learn­ing and Lead­er­ship di­rec­tor Richard Pengelley said it would be a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to raise funds for the chil­dren of Cam­bo­dia.

The Year 11 and 12 stu­dents will travel to Cam­bo­dia for the sec­ond time in De­cem­ber to vol­un­teer with the char­ity.

Mr Pengelley who is co-or­di­nat­ing the trip along with his wife Jo, said the stu­dents would be in­volved in var­i­ous ed­u­ca­tional, food and dance pro­grams.

“It’s a great ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence for the kids,” he said.

Karli Jef­fry (17), who trav­elled with the group on their first trip late last year, she said the work they did and learn­ing about their cul­ture was in­spir­ing.

“I will never for­get see­ing the kids faces as they all run up to you,” Karli said.
