Lowana Study Centre

Hello, my name is Bernadette, and I’m running the City2Surf for the second year!

I'm running again this year because I want to raise awareness on the much-needed fundraising efforts for the new building project of Lowana Study Centre in Penrith (a project owned by AEPL - Association for Educational Projects Ltd).

But hang on you say…


What the heck is Lowana, what are you building and for goodness sakes — why? 

Great questions!

Well, I invite you to watch this 6.5 minute video

My personal experience of Lowana

I first started going to Lowana when I was in my 3rd year at uni. A friend invited me to come and I made some friends on the very first day over some delicious afternoon tea and listening to a talk on The Philosophy of Beauty (Positive Body Image). One summer, I volunteered for The Wagga Service Project. I learned how to get out of my comfort zone and use my talents to help a remote community in need. Along with other university students and some young professionals, we spent a week of our summer working with the Wagga-based organisation Wafrica, creating an educational program, and visiting the sick and elderly.

The learning, character growth and solid friendships I have gained from Lowana coming into my life is incalculable. I hope many girls and young women from Western Sydney can come and experience what Lowana has to offer.

Your donation can shape Lowana's bright future

Currently, the centre is too small to conduct all our activities and we are expanding since we reach families hailing from Parramatta to The Blue Mountains! We run out of a 3 bedroom house with a decent back yard but we’re dreaming up a new home which has purpose-built activity rooms for high school clubs, university forums, young professional meet-ups, mum’s groups and more!

Please help me reach my target of $2000 by donating whatever you can! 

Words of affirmation and encouragement as I attempt to train is also welcome ;)

Thank you x a million,

Bernadette :)
