O-Week 2012

O-Week is an important time of the year for all University students and gives us a chance to speak to potential volunteers.

O-Week 2012 was a tale of extreme weather and extreme enthusiasm. To spread the word about our volunteer programs, Compass staff braved three days of frequent drenching rain, searing sun and muggy air at our O-Week stall on Eastern Avenue.

Fuelled by Fantales, Mentos and sheer chutzpah, we chatted to students and staff about how they could make a difference in our school communities through the Compass Word Up, Homework Club and Classroom Activity Facilitators programs.

At the end of a hard week, we were delighted to discover that almost 250 had registered their interest in volunteering. We look forward to hearing from them soon!
