Boarding Community Service Day - fun and games with Hope House.

On Saturday 27 February the Prem Boarding students welcomed the Hope House community for a morning of fun and games. The children had various activities available to participate in; a Disney movie on the big projector, sports in the gym, football on the fields, basketball on the courts or activities in the playground. Once the difficult decision was made of which activity to go to, the fun began!

The boarders showed great maturity and initiative interacting and assisting the Hope House children. From table tennis and badminton in the gym, to swings and digging in the Junior School, to movies and pancakes in the boarding lounge; all around the Prem campus smiles and laughter could be seen and heard. Deborah (Hope House Leader) stated, 'all the kids were happy and that makes us happy!'. Following the activities the students and children enjoyed lunch together in the cafeteria.

Within our boarding expectations every student is required to complete twenty hours of community service each year. The students are beginning to appreciate and understand that although going outside their comfort zones is initially difficult, the more effort and commitment they put into these events the more personal satisfaction and enjoyment they will have.

A successful community service event enjoyed by all and we look forward to welcoming Hope House back again soon!
