St Paul’s is running its annual trip to Cambodia in July this year. During our visit to Phnom Penh 13 boys from Years 10 and 11 and 3 staff will be teaching English and Maths to orphaned children, teaching rescued trafficked women and working with the Sisters of Charity and the Brothers of Charity. In Siem Reap they will be teaching in a village school on the outskirts of town.
As part of our tour we seek to take some items that may be difficult to get in Cambodia or cost wise are beyond the financial capacity of many of those we wish to help. As such we are seeking support for donations of the following items that will be taken by the boys and staff to Cambodia :
- Children’s clothes
- Age reader books for children through to teenagers
- Pens / pencils / erasers / sharpeners / exercise books / solar powered calculators
If you wish you can also contribute by purchasing:
- Unused Soccer balls / basketballs / volleyballs – these can be purchased from venues such as Mike Pawley Sports at Dee Why
- Foot pumps and connectors for the above
Nigeria Library Project
In addition to the above if you have used text books for any year level, St Paul’s is also collecting these for the Nigeria library Project – https://www.facebook.com/nigerialibraryproject/ which is another charity supported by the St Paul’s community. If you have any books to donate to this project can you please contact the College Office on 9977 5111.
