The Story below featured in last weeks Bulletin and the Editor would like to clarify that the funds to cover this sponsorship came from the "Brian Gibbs Memorial Trust".

The Board is delighted to announce the Club has agreed to assist with $1,000 sponsorship toward fees for a young teacher to attend an Outward Bound course in January 2021.

Vincent O'Çonnor is a 23 year old graduate from the University of Otago and currently a first-year teacher at Sacred Heart College, where he teaches Religious Education and English. Vincent lives at home with his parents and three of five older brothers, and is a keen hockey player outside of work.

He approached RC St Johns requesting some assistance to pay for the fees needed to attend the Outward Bound “Classic” course to be held in January 2021. This is something Vincent has wanted to experience for several years, as he has heard from close friends and family how this course helps one to grow and mature physically, mentally, and spiritually. The course he is enrolled for is the Classic 21-day experience for ages 18-26 year.

Vincent is looking forward to reporting back to us next year on his experience - so look out for him to feature early next year on the speaking schedule.
