UniHallers connect with the community in 2018

19 December 2018

UniHall residents enjoyed many outreach activities in 2018

In 2018, UniHallers made a positive contribution to the wider community with six student-run events focusing on Volunteer and Outreach.

The UniHall community learnt more about volunteering and outreach opportunities in WA at a Volunteering Information Session. Smaller groups then teamed up throughout the year for targeted events, including:

- making birthing kits for women in need,

- helping to protect Perth’s environment with a beach clean-up, and

- providing stress buster activities to assist UniHall residents to take time to recharge during the busy exam period. 

Another Volunteering and Outreach activity saw UniHall residents bring smiles to the faces of unwell children with fresh baking at Ronald McDonald House.

In Semester Two, a team of seven residents baked butterfly cupcakes, chocolate, and blueberry muffins, and also made fruit kebabs for the families.

UniHall resident Sneha helped coordinate the Ronald McDonald visits, and shared:

“The team worked very well together and it was very heart warming to know that what we put out would hopefully put smiles on lots of faces. At the end of the session, a few of us went on a tour led by one of the ‘Helping Hands’ volunteers.

The house is so colourful and beautifully decorated and showed the charity’s commitment to providing a home away from home for families at some of their most trying times."

We hope all students who took part in volunteering and outreach activities enjoyed the experience!
