Learning about Refugees
   On Monday 22 September, the St. Joseph Vinnies were fortunate to have Jettie from Nelson Refugee Services come to talk to the Vinnies about what it means to be a refugee; the countries where refugees come from; the work of Refugee Services as well as how Nelson Refugee Services assist former-refugees settle into our communitiy. This was a great opportunity to further build-on to the work we have been doing this term with assisting the children of the Victory Refugee Homework Academy as well as the mothers and preschoolers who belong to the ESOL group in going on a trip to Picton for a guided tour of the Interisland Ferry as well as viewing the Picton aquarium.
