Youth Voyage on the One and All Sailing Ship
The Port Pirie boys were on the journey of a lifetime, partly made possible by Independent Frome MP Geoff Brock.
As a result of Mr Brock’s Youth Forum in Port Piire last year, O’Reilly, 17, and Decklan, 15, were taught maritime skills aboard the sail-training ship between January 22 and 26. A student from Riverton High School also joined the voyage, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The ship’s team had a promotional display at the forum and the teenagers took up the challenge with Mr Brock, Member for Frome sponsoring their travel costs to and from the ship’s departure and… destination points. The Youth Forum had aimed to help young people develop leadership skills, confidence and maturity.
