Over the Easter break, a group of students from Grenfell High Community School travelled to Monti Cristi, a small community in the Dominican Republic, to take part in a volunteer trip. The group had the opportunity to work with an organization called Outreach360. The students practiced leadership by teaching English to students of all ages. Each morning, they taught for two hours in the local schools and in the afternoon they taught different lessons at an afterschool program located at the outreach center. With classes as large as 40 students, the young people volunteering worked hard managing and teaching. They had an absolute blast lesson planning, and leading activities and songs. The week had a perfect mix of volunteering, cultural activities/information, time to relax on the beautiful beaches, and time to process/debrief as a group. The students described the trip as, "an unforgettable experience", "new friends, new world", "life changing" and "eye-opening". Needless to say, this won't be last time that you will hear about students from GHCS doing amazing things to make a positive change in our often negative world!
