CBD students put the unity in community
As part of our Disability Unit’s City-Based Discovery (CBD) Program, our year 10 students recently volunteered at Puddle Jumpers’ new warehouse in Kilkenny.
Puddle Jumpers is a South Australian charity that provides support for children and families at risk through holidays, recreational activities and food donations.
As part of their community service this term, the students helped to organise the new warehouse, sort through donations, prepare food packs for delivery, pack the delivery truck as well as other general cleaning and gardening tasks.
Our students demonstrated excellent work ethic by being punctual, completing each job well, taking initiative, supporting each other as a team and communicating respectfully.
At the end of the term, Puddle Jumper Supervisors Mel and Bailee told us how much everyone appreciated the better working conditions in the warehouse and how grateful they are to our students for acting so professionally.
By volunteering with organisations like Puddle Jumpers, our students are given the opportunity to not only improve their practical skills but give back to their local community.
I couldn’t be prouder of our year 10’s – they were model representatives of our school. Well done!
