Fundamental to Avondale School teaching is that service to others really matters and that students grow in character, leadership and ability through experience.
Every year secondary students and staff, united in their cause, their friendships and their service participate in STORMCo (Service to Others Really Matter Company). The heart of STORM Co is our service in the community. Teams from Avondale School visit the outback communities of Cobar and Wee Waa where the average child does not experience the same positive opportunities that students of Avondale School are offered on a daily basis.
Avondale Schoolies are given the opportunity of a life-changing alternative to traditional schoolies activities. Building on our focus on service to others in our school, Cambodia offers a unique overseas experience in making a difference in our world for our students about to embark on life beyond school. Many students have changed what they want to do and study following what they experience in Cambodia.
Participating in a service trip, Avondale Schoolies team up with International "RestoreOne" to work in Cambodian orphanages and build houses in remote villages, all while experiencing Cambodian history, culture, foods and people.
In an adventure just a little beyond the ordinary the Cambodia Schoolies experience not only makes a difference in the lives of those it helps, but also in the lives of its participants, cementing relationships, impact and memories.
