Students Trade Textbooks for Hiking Boots

​Emma Mezga

During the upcoming school holidays Emma Mezga and Max Bennett will trade textbooks for hiking boots as they travel to Papua New Guinea as part of the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program.

Papua New Guinea is a spiritually, emotionally rewarding place walking in the footsteps of our Aussie soldiers who bravely defended Australia in 1942. While trekking their way through the mud, water, slippery tree roots across the difficult terrain they will see some of the most beautiful landscapes Papua New Guinea has to offer passing through some famous land marks and battle sites including the home of the famous four pillars: Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice at the Isurava battlefield.

We wish them all the best on their brave and amazing adventure.
