Essendon Fields is proud to assist the community in
helping others, help themselves.
Essendon Fields is a major supporter of the community in Moonee
Valley. By building partnerships and participating in community
activities, we believe we can help foster Melbourne's reputation as
the most liveable city in the world.
Essendon Fields believes the youth are the foundation of our
future therefore every year sponsors the Victorian Police Kokoda
trek Program to help address youth issues within the community. 16
Moonee Valley Students and members of the Victorian Police take on
Papua New Guinea's Owen Stanley Ranges and the famous Kokoda Track.
While testing the grit and perseverance of each student, the
adventure also provides a rites-of-passage experience. By the end
of the adventure, each participant will be changed, they will
better understand teamwork, they will know about sacrifice and they
will better know themselves - they will also have wealth of new
friends, a lesson experience not only from a history
