LOCAL GIRLS IN WORLD CHALLENGE EXPEDITION

Lucy Godde and Victoria Leov, who both attend Billabong High School, will embark on an expedition to Malaysia and Borneo in December 2014.

The 4 week trip is undertaken through the World Challenge organisation which develops personal and leadership skills while experiencing another culture. While in Malaysia the girls will be involved in trekking through highland areas and pristine rainforest areas. They will also volunteer in a rural community where they will be involved in a construction project and work with children, possibly in an orphanage situation.

World Challenge encourages students involved in the program to do some fund raising themselves so they have greater ownership of the experience. So far Lucy and Victoria have held several morning tea days for local schools and businesses, and have had stalls at local markets. Throughout 2014 they will hold more fundraisers, including a trivia night.
