Thirteen tired young adults returned from the trip of lifetime on Monday. The Year 12 students have just spent the past 16 days in Cambodia working with Reach Out Volunteers. The work included building foundations for a new classroom and work at an elephant sanctuary, then building a toilet/bathroom (from scratch) and re-weatherboarding a home for an underprivileged family and teaching English at a village school. the work was hard and done in trying conditions, but work the students did. There was also down time with visits to Kulen Mountain, Angkor Wat at sunrise, a lady boy show, massages, shopping and lots more.
The whole experience made everyone realise how lucky we have it in Australia.
