What does it take to help somebody?

Few people can respond as fast as this group of amazing students from Waverley Christian College!!!

After hearing about ZOE and their work to combat the trafficking of children at a recent Chapel service the Student Representative Council got together and were spurred into action.

They arranged a meeting with the Deputy Head of Secondary and organised a free dress day with the proceeds going to ZOE!

Family Friendly This Fall

ZOE’s Annual ZOE Rescue Walk is in just 4 months. Though this sounds like it’s a ways out, time seems to be flying by lately that it will be here in no time.
