After a lot of planning and meeting the first event for Across barriers school program has started at Christian Brothers College, St Kilda,
Two events have taken place where parents, schools and communities have been able to meet together to share stories, experiences and just to meet up giving support to new families in our school communities.
Christian Brothers College, St Kilda had a lovely relaxed evening with new families from Sudan. With the assistance of the former school captain Anei Thou, Teachers and parents shared food and stories in a relaxed venue. Children played while parents developed ties, discussing various recipes and trying new flavours such as Okra. There was also a bit of dancing and music too. We are hoping to encourage more families over the year to meet up.
Good planning CBC and well done Anei for getting the ball rolling.
