Christ Church Youth Year 12 School Leavers Trip! 

For over 25 years graduating students at Christ Church have enjoyed an exciting supervised alternative to the traditional school leavers holiday (schoolies).

The trip promises to be filled with unforgettable experiences. Every school-leaver is welcome!

Regular $2095 - Pay the $200 deposit after 1 January 2018

With: The Fiji Trip is conducted in partnership with Youthworks Year 13 and Anglican Aid.
Year 13 is a gap year programme for school leavers. They have more than ten years of conducting extended trips to Fiji. The year 13 experience is a great opportunity for young people to travel, study, meet other young Christians and prepare themselves for the challenges of tertiary study. We commend their programme. You can find more information by visiting the Year 13 website HERE.

Anglican Aid is the international charitable arm of the Anglican Diocese Sydney. From 2015 they are exploring ways to support sustainable aid projects in Fiji. We look forward to offering further support to their significant work. You can find more information by visiting the Anglican Aid website HERE.

Why: Finishing Year Twelve is something to celebrate. Our experience has been that the Fiji Trip offers a unique way to celebrate with unforgettable experiences, an opportunity to make a positive difference, all in a safe and supportive community.

Jesus: As young adults making big decisions, the end of year twelve provides the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the big questions of life. Christ Church Youth believe that the answer to life big questions is Jesus. During our time away the group will benefit from Bible talks, prayer and lots of opportunity to chat and think. Christ Church Youth is committed to providing a safe space for people of all faith perspectives to consider the Christian gospel for themselves.
