Fitzroy Crossing Service Learning Immersion Expedition

Fitzroy Crossing Service Learning Immersion Expedition

At All Saints’ College, our fully-embedded H3: Heads, Hearts and Hands Service Learning program is an important way in which we help empower our students to become connected, confident and compassionate members of society.

During the July school holidays our students and staff made a positive difference to the lives of others, and learnt much about themselves in the process, when they participated in the College’s third annual Fitzroy Crossing Service Learning Immersion expedition.

In partnership with Teach Learn Grow, our students provided one-on-one tutoring and mentoring to students at the Bayulu Remote Community School and, for the first time and due to the popularity of this program amongst All Saints’ students, worked alongside students at a second school, the Muludja Remote Community School.

This Service Learning experience provides an opportunity for the College to further develop our partnerships with these two schools and, importantly, to share the gift of education with the children of Bayulu and Muludja, supporting them as they strive to reach their full potential.

The College was pleased this year to send a third group of All Saints’ students to Fitzroy Crossing, as part of Voices, the College’s Service/Arts initiative. Our Voices team of students and staff spent the week recording the stories of significant members of the Bayulu and Fitzroy Valley communities. This will be shared as an artistic representation of this rich and deep history and heritage, alongside which we are so privileged to walk, and from which the All Saints’ students and staff learn so much.
