Leavers 2 Leaders gives Year 12 students an alternative to the traditional concept of ‘Leavers’ revelry. Instead it embraces the concept of servant leadership and exploring the world God has given us through acts of service and understanding.
The program exposes students to what life is like in a third world country and challenges them both physically and emotionally. These experiences allow students to grow as individuals in a safe environment and inspire them to make a difference in this world. Additionally, the work and programs the students complete make a real difference to the poverty stricken communities they visit, by funding and assisting with education, feeding, infrastructure, health, pastoral care and business projects.
The 2016 trip will run from November 19 – December. We expect the trip to cost $2500. This cost includes all flights and transfers, travel insurance, meals and accommodation, travel bags, team shirts and trip resources.
Past student teams have built homes and orphanages, run feeding programs that supply well over 5000 meals, established libraries, assisted with schooling, run medical clinics and helped micro businesses. The outreach program has had a profound impact on our students and the College community. Students grow in their understanding of the world and develop values of compassion, service and love that in turn positively impact on their peers when they return home.
