Strathalbyn senior students and their teachers recently visited East-Timor. The college was very thorough in their preparations, which included a visit to the Travel Clinic in Panaceum.

In the 10 days in-country they re-painted a school, visited two remote villages in the highlands, and donated medicine, uniforms, stationery and money to various local projects.“We really appreciated the generous support of the Panaceum staff. The thorough travel advice and the prayers of other supporters are surely the reason why none of the team were sick during or after the trip,” said Anita Kirkbright, development officer.

“One of our teachers, Beverley Hanrahan, presented the medications donated by The Panaceum Group to a nurse in charge at a remote birthing clinic,” she said.

The mission trip was a life-effecting opportunity for students and staff. “Our students grew in their appreciation for what they have and in their ability to make a difference,” said principal Paul Arundell in the school Newsletter.

There are two Travel Clinics in Geraldton: in Panaceum (233 Lester Avenue) and in the Bill Sewell Complex (90 Chapman Road). Contact us.
