Kokoda Student challenge
Rather than talk about food this week I want to talk about the College and one of the challenges they are pursuing. Some of you will have seen the School sausage sizzle operating at the markets, some of you have hopefully brought a sausage. The funds raised from the sale of the sausages is to help send a group of year 11 students to trek the Kokoda trail, later this month.
They are currently in training for their trek over the Kokoda trail in PNG. The students leave on 29 June this year for 2 weeks of walking the track, visiting villages along the way, and finally visiting the Australian War Graves to pay their respects. They are supported by the Victoria Police and the college community.
The students are still activity fund raising and will be at the market this Sunday selling sausages and chocolate to get them over the mountains. I think this is a fantastic initiative by the new school principal Alan Davies and his staff and of course the students, and I hope you (my market patrons) will be able to support the school community; so when you come to the market this Sunday go and have a chat to them, tell them about sensible footwear and buy a sausage.
