The Wayside Chapel’s school education program provides a unique opportunity for high school students to gain insight into the issues facing people living on and around the streets of Kings Cross and the way in which Wayside provides vital support within the community.
The program is structured into two main sessions. The first focuses on engagement and education with a presentation and discussion about the three mainissues facing many of Wayside’s visitors: homelessness; drug and alcohol addiction; and mental health.
The second session incorporates a walking tour of Kings Cross and the surrounding area. During the walk the group stops near agencies to learn how they operate, their history and how they answer the needs of those in the community. This session also features real Wayside stories, and concludes with a debrief and opportunity for students to discuss the initiatives they may undertake to lend support for those who are disadvantaged in the community.
