RSL and Services Clubs Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge

James Passmore (G11) is lucky enough to have been offered a sponsored trip by the Harbord Diggers Mounties Group, to trek the Kokoda Trail. He will be visiting well known sites along the track and meeting students at local schools whilst trekking. It is a very challenging trek and James is hard at work training for his adventure. We wish him well and look forward to hearing all the details from him.
