Boot­camp to fund trip

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

HALE School staff Kate Feu­trill and Wendy Cor­mack are rais­ing funds for the school vol­un­teer trip in the Solomon Is­lands with a char­ity boot­camp.

The Hale School Solomon Is­lands Chap­lain’s Pil­grim­age co-or­di­nated by Chap­lain Fa­ther Dougall has taken groups of years 10 and 11 stu­dents ev­ery two years to sup­port the Siro Com­mu­nity High School in the Cen­tral Province of the Solomon Is­lands.

Stu­dents raise at least $500 each be­fore the trip and are in­volved in com­mu­nity ser­vice while there.

The boys buddy up with Siro stu­dents and spend time peer tu­tor­ing in the class­room, as well as help­ing with chores.

Over the last three vis­its, the money raised has pro­vided the com­mu­nity with a boat and so­lar pan­els that pro­vide power to the main school build­ings.

The boot­camp or­gan­ised by Travis Sawyer from Fit Faster Group and Per­sonal Train­ing will be at Woodlands Pri­mary School, Septem­ber 5, at 8am.
