An exciting new opportunity has opened up to Trohpiq this year. Link-Up (Qld), an organisation which helps link members of the Stolen Generation with their families and cultures, have requested that 10 students volunteer at their Cherbourg Reunion Camp in April. The reunion camp is a healing camp for the people who stayed at the dormitories in Cherbourg for the many years of its operation. Unfortunately this time we are restricted to taking medical students only, however I hope to expand this to the Allied Health students in future engagements with Link-Up.
The camp will be running from the 15th-18th April (Fri-Mon) in Cherbourg, and food, accommodation and fuel (for 2-3 cars) will be provided free of charge. In return, we will have volunteering duties in the running of the camp, requests to join in some sessions during the camp as well as plenty of time to get to know the people around us. I’m afraid I don’t have more refined details than this, however these will be provided in a (compulsory) briefing for the 10 students, which will be conducted by Link-Up before the camp (at the St Lucia campus). I hope I’ve conveyed to you what a privilege it will be to be a part of this special weekend and look forward to your registrations of interest! Please do so using the link to the form included in this email.
If we could please have all your expressions of interest by Monday, 14th March, it would be greatly appreciated.
