Pathways Boarding Students Raise Awareness for STEPS At ‘Sconetime’
Hosted by the Caloundra Country Women’s Association and Martin Duncan, Sunshine Coast foodie, Sconetime is a regular morning tea meet-up created for locals on the Sunshine Coast looking to connect with others.
The students assisted with setting up the event and setting the tables. During the morning tea, students served the community with tea and coffee and delicious scones with jam and cream.
The objective for the day was to give back to the community by volunteering.
While there Katrina and students were able to raise awareness in the local community of the great work STEPS Pathways College does to help change the lives of others by teaching young people independent living skills.
Students were able to increase their confidence and communication skills by conversing with locals from the community including business owners, aged care residents and members of local groups and clubs.
They also raised awareness of the volunteer program at STEPS and what locals can do to help.
“It makes me feel good to do good things for others,” says Elisha.
The students enjoyed setting up and making the tables appear as perfect as possible. They also enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy morning tea as a reward for the efforts of volunteering.
