Year 9 students have begun their visits to the lovely residents at OzCare in Burleigh this term. For me, it was an amazing experience that allowed us to learn more from the wiser members of our community whilst providing us the opportunity to further enhance our communication skills.

The time we spent together allowed us to share aspects of lives whilst reflecting on how times have changed so much.

Albert Einstein once said, “Only a life lived in the service to others is worth living."

I find that this quote perfectly summarises the importance of actively being involved in your community and to understand how your actions can influence others.

I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of this truly memorable experience. All Year 9 students will visit OzCare Burleigh this year as part of the Service Learning Programme.
