While their classmates enjoyed a break from study, a team of students from Avondale cared for kids in a far western New South Wales town.
Students at Avondale are giving up one Sunday a month to organise a family fun day as a free service to their local community.
With the midyear recess at Avondale College of Higher Education came a feeling of relief but also of excitement and uncertainty as students left the safety of the campus for adventures in service overseas and in regional New South Wales. This aspect of the Avondale experience is so important it appears in the corporate statement of mission.
Federal Member for Charlton Greg Combet visited Avondale College Friday to meet students who gave up their holidays to serve in regional New South Wales.
