We are proud of our growing intern program, attracting secondary and tertiary students with a range of interests from Melbourne University, GTRS, Lauriston Girls School and De La Salle, Malvern.

Haresh (aka Harry) has joined us for four months to manage our volunteer applications and hospital registrations. Amanda Ang completed her internship which she undertook as a unit in her psychology major to complete her arts degree. Amanda enjoyed being exposed to lots of different aspects of Koala Kids and having endeared herself to our Monday team we are all tickled pink that she wants to stay on as a regular volunteer.

Four Lauriston girls are completing their Lauriston Honors program at Koala Kids.  The VCE students are being exposed to many areas including writing blogs for our website and other hands-on tasks to enhance their appreciation of the support we provide families in the cancer centres.

This week we welcomed Zara Carter, Ellie Johns and Natalia Oberoi-Kearney starting their Duke of Edinburgh Blue community experience and year 9 student James Suffolk is working in the office each Tuesday this term as part of De La Salle’s companionship program .
