ALWS Awareness Day

March 18, 2019

Last Thursday the Community Captains and Student Executives visited Redeemer Lutheran College, Rochedale to participate in the annual ALWS Awareness Day. This year the focus was on 'What If...?' and asked students to consider how they would feel if they were a refugee. Our students demonstrated exemplary behaviour and participated in all activities enthusiastically. After learning about the massive needs in refugee camps, our students have decided that they want to take action and begin a service learning project at Bethany. More details about this will come as they envisage what they would like to do.

We also learnt more about The Grace Project, which is the ALWS Program our Worship Offerings have been going to during Term 1. Our students were excited to learn that we will be able to sponsor multiple children for an entire year as it only costs $28 per child to send them to school and provide them with stationery. Once the term is finished we will be able to see how many children we can sponsor.
