During the last week of Term 2, Year 9 students were involved in several community service projects as part of our Ignite program.
Student community services included:
* Cleaning the church windows, floors and pews.
* Backyard blitz for local pensioners
* Emu parade around Beerwah – cleaning rubbish from the creeks and estuaries.
* Visits to aged care and disability centres such as Embracia, Glasshouse Country Care and Endeavour to spend time with the residents, play board games with them and event put on a special morning tea.
One group of students planted approximately 100 trees at Mount Ngungun. They had the help of rangers and students were amazed by how much knowledge they had of botany. This is what ranger Cheryl Thompson wrote:
Vance and I would like to thank you all for a great effort. We hope that you and kids can come back and visit soon to see the results of the great work.
Please contact me if you want to do anymore work in the parks.
