Kokoda Trek 2008
The VCD Kokoda expedition has returned from their amazing journey to Papua New Guinea to do the Kokoda Trail.
We Did It!
On the 27th October 2008 the following Victorian College for the Deaf students successfully completed the 96 kilometre Kokoda Track-
And staff Daniel Hately, Angela Maclean and Andrew Welshe
The students did an amazing job and we are so proud of everything they have achieved. This was a once in a lifetime experience and something our students will have with them forever. We have noticed a change already in their attitudes, behaviours, and outlook on life, everything we wished for has been exceeded.
We do again want to thank everyone, from staff to family to friends to VCD students, thank you all for you support and for encouraging us from the moment we first came up with this crazy idea. It was the experience of a lifetime for all of us and we are so privileged to have had your involvement to enable us to make the journey.
We knew this experience would be a life changing one, but it has been more than that, and something the VCD Kokoda Crew of 2008 will always share.
