📣🌟 Volunteer Spotlight: Let's Meet Keith!

Keith's volunteering journey began 15 years ago in New Zealand, and he has been making a positive impact on his community ever since through EdConnect Australia .

Keith chose to become a volunteer because he wanted to contribute to his community. Recognising the importance of giving back, he selflessly dedicated his time and skills to make a difference in the lives of others.

Keith has had several memorable moments throughout his volunteering journey, but ones that stand out is when he sees the young people he has worked with thriving and succeeding over the years. Witnessing their growth and accomplishments fills his heart with pride and joy.

Here's a little-known fact about Keith: He is originally from South Africa. His diverse background and experiences have shaped his perspective and enriched his ability to connect with and understand people from different walks of life.

Let's celebrate Keith's dedication to his community and the positive influence he has had on the lives of young people.

📣🌟 Volunteer Spotlight: Let's Meet Derek!

Derek started on his volunteering adventure in February 2023 at Coodanup College through EdConnect Australia . But his dedication to helping others started even earlier, in 2019, as a computer trainer at Murray Library in Pinjarra.

Derek chose to become a volunteer because he firmly believes that the skills he developed during his working life can be of great relevance to others. By helping and supporting others, he not only stretches his own knowledge but also continues to learn and grow himself.

Derek's most cherished moment on his volunteering journey? It was when, after 16 months of maintaining a mostly superficial relationship with his mentee, they finally opened up and engaged in deep, meaningful conversations about personal matters. This breakthrough marked a significant turning point in their connection.

Did you know that Derek has a hidden talent? Here's a little-known fact: Three years after retiring, he taught himself to play the guitar. Now, it has become his passion! Derek not only writes, records, and produces his own songs but also adds captivating videos to some of them.

Derek wants to share some words of wisdom with all of you. He finds that volunteering not only allows him to make a positive impact but also fulfils his own curiosity and thirst for knowledge. It's a mutually beneficial journey where he gains so much more than the effort he puts in. And, of course, he believes volunteering helps keep his brain healthy too!

Let's give Derek a huge round of applause for his commitment and the joy he brings through his music and volunteering efforts.

📣 Attendance Tip - Get Organised!

One of the best ways to start the day off right is to get organised the night before.

Take a few minutes before bed to pack your backpack - double-check that you have all your books, notebooks, and supplies packed in your bag, ready to go. Nothing worse than rushing in the morning trying to find your math homework only to be found it was eaten by the dog during the night!

Don't forget to prep your lunch too. Whether you're bringing a homemade meal or just some snacks, having it ready in the fridge will save you time (and stress!) in the morning.

And lastly, lay out your clothes for the next day. That way you can just grab and go without any last-minute scrambling.

A little preparation goes a long way!
