THE Portland Golf Club and Bayview College are calling on golfers and the local community to help support the 2014 ‘schoolies week’ through a round of golf on Sunday, November 17. If that doesn’t sound too enticing, it should be noted this schoolies week does not involve students flocking to beaches in northern states to get up to all forms of mischief, this is for Schoolies With a Cause, a concept that sees students at the end of their secondary schooling volunteer to work for a week in a disadvantaged community. Bayview College will be going to Vietnam for the third time this year, and with this year’s group having already raised the $5,000 required for the materials for this year’s project, efforts are already underway to raise money for next year’s event. The event will see teams of four compete in an Ambrose event, teeing off at 11.30am, with the event open to both members and non members. Read more in Wednesday’s Portland Observer, November 6, 2013.
