The Schoolies CHALLENGE 2009

Rokforce is running a "Schoolies 2009" project with Year 12 students at Avondale School and is encouraging other schools in the region to take up the challenge and do something worthwhile for Schoolies.

Here's what Year 12 at Avondale School have to say:

We dare you to do a schoolies week that is radical and out there. We are the Year 12 Avondale School class of 2009 - and we’ve given ourselves - and now you! - the challenge to do something that is adventurous, life changing for ourselves and others, and an experience that we will remember forever.

To revel in our freedom of ending 13 years of school we are creating our own adventure through Cambodia for a couple of weeks, with a big part of the time generating fun for the kids at an orphanage. We’ll be doing sports, music, drama, stories and other activities with them. We’ll also have an amazing road trip throughout the country, making all kinds of discoveries and experiencing the culture. We’ll create some amazing memories with our friends and classmates before heading off on our different life paths. The global financial crisis has been good for us because we’ve bought air tickets at little more than
the taxes and airport charges.

We challenge you to create your own schoolies adventure that’s way out there beyond the ordinary. Be creative. Be a dare! Make a difference and make it an experience of a lifetime. It might be just for a day, a week or two weeks. It could be overseas, in your community, somewhere else in Oz. It might be all your class or just a few of you. Your life
will never be the same again…


... Create an experience of a lifetime!

Create your own adventure - just give it a go! We will encourage you and share ideas.
