Service to Others Really Matters (Stormco) is a concept which became reality when a chaplain in an Adventist school challenged his students to travel together to a small town in Australia and run beneficial and enjoyable community activities. The students and staff sacrificed their time in order to serve and give unconditionally to others, in the same way that Jesus did.
Prescott College runs a service learning camp to Port Augusta every year which is based on the Stormco principle. Miss Krissie Hopkins coordinated a group of interested Year 10 and 11 students, and for the the first time, Year 9 students were also considered upon written application. Stormco week was filled with a Kids Club, free for the local community, held every morning from Monday – Friday. During Kids Club, our College students played games with the children, performed dramatic Bible stories, and helped children create colourful crafts of different jungle animals. During the afternoons, students and teachers went on retirement home visits, offered car washes and did a backyard blitz. Students also ran a free community BBQ at the local park, as a service to the Port Augusta community. The Prescott College Stormco Team would like to thank those who supported financially, verbally and prayerfully, because this trip would not have happened without your help.
The Prescott College Fete is another event which provides a service to our local community. On Sunday 30th October, our staff and students will give generously of their time and talents to provide a fun, safe and family orientated event for College families and the Prospect community. The Prescott College Creative Arts (PCCA) team will be performing modern Christian music. Several generous sponsors have donated lucky door prizes to give away. I encourage you to join us this Sunday to support our College students, help to generate a strong sense of community and watch our students find joy in service to others.
