  • Hannah to attend UN Youth's Pacific Project

    15 December, 2017

    Some late, very exciting news; Year 10 ASC student Hannah McCarthy has been chosen to attend United Nation Youth’s Pacific Project 2018.

    Pacific Project is a year-long initiative open to students in Years 10, 11 and 12 from around Australia. Only 12 young leaders from around Australia are chosen for the project, so it is an amazing achievement for Hannah to be selected!

    This is an exciting opportunity to embark on a two-week tour of East Timor exploring the complex realities of development in one of our closest neighbours.

    Pacific Project centres around an unforgettable 2-week tour of East Timor during the July holidays. Hannah will hold some fundraising initiatives in 1st and 2nd term next year to assist with projects undertaken while in East Timor.

    She will also continue her philanthropy upon return to Australia by continuing to raise funds with the other delegates to continue the projects developed while on tour.

    As part of the Pacific Project, students learn about sustainable development and the challenges of international aid. They will also spend time working with local communities and grassroots organisations, including working closely with the partner school in Maliana, Encouragement House.

    Congratulations Hannah and I hope the school community gets behind Hannah and supports this very worthwhile initiative.

    Mrs Sarah O’Neill
