Thanks from the Former-Refugee Community
The Former-Refugee Community we fund-raised for last term had a wonderful time over in Picton. According to Marion Gilbertson from the Victory Refugee Homework Academy who organised the trip, "All the refugee mums who came loved it and the children had a great day." They visited the bridge on the Kaitaki, much to the boys excitement and thanks to the fundraising that happened were able to shout the students into EcoWorld Acquarium which they said was amazing. Says Marion, "Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to your Vinnie students. We showed your fundraising banner to the Victory Staff where it got a warm round of applause."
Below are a couple of photos of the students at Victory Refugee Homework Academy holding up the models they made of the Interisland Ferry as part of their study.
