St Christopher’s is a Home run by an Anglican Order of Sisters from the diocese of Polynesia. While some of the children at the Home are orphans, others are there because they have been abused, neglected or abandoned by their families. The Sisters are humble, Christian women who are constantly giving and caring for these children. The staff from the Armidale schools fully support the efforts of the students as they seek to make possible their involvement in this trip by raising funds towards their work at the Home.
Our intention is to offer ourselves in service to St Christopher’s in any way we can while we are at the Home. Thus, we will participate in the upkeep and daily maintenance of the Home and offer friendship to the children. We hope to extend some love and kindness, through our presence. For ourselves, apart from this voluntary service, we look forward to experiencing a different cultural environment, gaining a better understanding of ourselves, and learning to consider the needs of others.
While we strongly encourage students to apply for this trip, there are limited places available and most years we are over-subscribed.
Unless there are significant concerns about an applicant’s ability to contribute positively to this experience, applicants will be randomly selected. Both successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email.
The aims of this service opportunity are:
