MAKING A DIFFERENCE

A group of Year 11 girls from Carramar and Duncraig spent their school holidays making a difference at Bethany Home in Malaysia. Students helped the children with their aerobics, motor skills, physical education and arts and crafts, while also taking the time to create a beautiful Peter Pan mural. The Tour no doubt forged close friendships and created memories the girls will never forget.

Tour of Service – Bethany Home

Ms Ntoumenopoulos and Mr Lance Owen accompanied eight Year 11 students from across our campuses on the St Stephen’s Global Programs visit to Bethany Home in Malaysia. The life-changing trip saw the group live and work at Bethany Home – a school for students with various disabilities – helping with daily tasks and leaving their mark with a beautiful mural on the buildings.

“It’s a privilege to leave a part of ourselves at such a beautiful place, although the etchings Bethany Home has left on us cut far deeper and will no doubt last much longer,” Duncraig English and Drama Teacher Ms Stefani Ntoumenopoulos reflected.
