Homeless Shelter 2017-18

In October our school collected food for a local homeless shelter as part of our Harvest celebration. The School Council  had the privilege of visiting this community where they learnt about the provisions offered at the shelter and some of the important work they do in order to support those without a home. They got to meet some homeless people and one young man gave a short speech about his experiences and answered the children’s questions.
