EARLIER this year representatives from the Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation attended the Kalamunda Careers Expo and offered those in attendance the chance to win a place onboard the STS Leeuwin II.
Kalamunda Senior High School student Eli Dewstow (15) was the lucky winner for a voyage on the ship for one week.
He sailed from Monkey Mia to Fremantle as part of the prize.
Rotary Club of Kalamunda youth services officer Eddie Lee said there was only one lucky young West Australian who had the opportunity to take the trip each year.
“Rotary Kalamunda raises money through the Kalamunda Village Market to support local and international youth and community projects,” he said.
“We were delighted to sponsor Eli Dewstow from Kalamunda Senior High School to embark on a voyage on the STS Leeuwin II,” Mr Lee said.
The Leeuwin Foundation is an award-winning provider of personal development and leadership programs that provides key life skills for young people aged 14-25 that they will take into their studies, careers and community.
Since 1986, the Leeuwin has provided exciting and life-changing programs to more than 40,000 young people across Australia.
The voyages aim to challenge and inspire young people to realise their personal potential and make a positive contribution to the wider community.
