A PASSIONATE group of Medowie Christian School students are organising their last fundraising event later this month before they head off on a very important mission trip to Port Vila, Vanuatu.
The Team Port Vila Vanuatu Mission Trip students have all been working hard to earn the $1600 required to cover the cost of their trip.
The $1600 includes their airfare, transportation, housing, and food.
Once in Port Vila, the students will be teaching English to small groups of children.
They will also be going out into the local villages to help out with building a house on the property where they are staying.
Their last fundraiser to gather last minute funds for the trip will be in the form of a special High Tea.
Running the event will be ten of the students who are going on the mission trip.
The team consists of Ashley Craddock, Jade Keher, Madeline Galloway, Windjana Chester, Tani Broadhead, Amity Carter, Courtney Haddow, Christopher Woodfield, Jackson Kennedy and Finlee Barnes.
There will be a guessing competition on the day, as well as a silent auction with many local businesses and families who have donated prizes.
The team is also running an island-themed photo booth to capture the fun of the day.
The event is scheduled for Sunday 28 May at Pacific Dunes.
