Syrian Refugee Crisis

We would like to say a huge thank you to all parents and carers who contributed so generously to the collection held for the Syrian Refugee Crisis. Some of our parents from the Highfield Oval (YWAM) are travelling to Lesbos, Greece to help the refugees who are arriving on the island.

Only a few nights ago, about 12 boats arrived with approximately 600 wet and cold refugees. The team are handing out clothes, food and blankets and doing basic first aid. They are raising funds to enable them to take extra luggage with them containing supplies such as clothes and blankets. Our school has been able to donate funds from our collection for 2 suitcases of clothes to be taken.
