BTAC Students Lead and Serve

Learn Lead and Serve is the motto at Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College, and in January 2017 eight students from Bishop Tyrrell ventured to Cambodia to do just that.

Visiting ministries in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap the students blessed the less fortunate and shared the love of Jesus with the children they met along the way. As a group, they were stretched out of their comfort zones and experienced many challenges, both personally and as a team, and as they overcame these challenges it became an amazing, rewarding experience to remember forever.

A new Cambodia team has formed for the next trip in 2018, and most recently hosted a Fashion Parade and Sale and raised enough money to purchase a tuk tuk for YWAM (Youth with a Mission).

The evening of the Fashion Parade started with ticket holders being treated to pre-show canapés that were prepared at the College by the Hospitality Students. Guests were then ushered into the Francis Batty Hall for a preview of the vintage clothes, op shop and craft stalls.

Bishop Tyrrell staff and students modelled outfits for the audience and the night concluded with an auction of the clothes that featured in the show.

The Vintage Shop remained open the following day for the College Community and public, with all proceeds going towards purchasing and donating a Tuk Tuk for YWAM (Youth With A Mission), and providing housing for widows in Cambodia.

Congratulations to the students of Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College who, with all their hard work and dedication, have reached their goal and raised enough money to purchase a Tuk Tuk for YWAM.

The students are looking forward to their service trip where they will teach English in schools, visit orphanages and learn some basic Khmer language. They are currently preparing puppets, songs and drama performances to entertain.
