This year we will have one group of students and staff travelling to Timor Leste. The staff members are Mr Steve Bognar and Ms Tara McGrath and Father Joe Taylor, parish Priest of St Brendan’s Parish, will also be travelling with them.
The group will visit various Marist associated schools, learning centres and community programs around Timor-Leste and Baucau. The ever reliable and enthusiastic Sebas will again be the guide and mentor for our group as they learn much about the culture and friendliness of the East Timorese people.
