Year 12 students help with SES efforts

Noosa District State High School Year 12 students Alana Van Der Linden and Chandler Kamradt spent the last 3 days volunteering with the State Emergency Service (SES) filling sandbags and attending to call outs in the lead up and aftermath of ex-tropical cyclone Debbie's destructive path across across the Sunshine Coast.

Over 2000 sandbags were filled by the pair each day.

Alana, who has never volunteered with the SES before, gave up her 17th birthday to spend it helping others.

Both students are now awaiting on confirmation as to whether they will be dispatched to help with the clean up further afield in the north or south of the state.

Alana and Chandler also volunteer with the rural fire service and have completed their training through the school's certificate course.
