Year 7 & 8 Leadership Excursion

On Friday 16 August, the Year 7 and 8 leaders went on a leadership excursion with Mr Donaghy and Mr Hemley. After spending some time doing activities with the Year 11 Peer Support Team, we got on the bus and travelled to Wangara and visited the Wheelchairs for Kids workshop. This allowed us to understand where the aluminium cans that the Year 10 students collect go to get used. We got shown around the workshop to see what pieces of equipment are used to make the wheelchairs and we learnt that they have made over 45,000 of them since 1998. The wheelchairs are sent to countries all around the world.

 

After the visit we headed down to Zone Bowling in Morley. It gave us the opportunity to socialise and it was great fun. Before going back to Mazenod, Mr Hemley spent some time playing games and doing activities to keep us amused.
