Last Sunday Loreto Normanhurst hosted our ninth annual Sudanese Community Day and it was a wonderful day of feasting, fun and friendship.
Sudanese Community Day is designed to provide opportunities for our students to be part of building bridges across communities, especially in relation to newly arrived migrants and refugees.
Our Year 10 and 11 girls hosted 58 children and 15 mothers from the Blacktown Sudanese Community, providing morning tea, lunch, lots of activities for the children and a great opportunity for their mothers to relax and catch up.
We really value this tradition at Loreto Normanhurst and we look forward to celebrating the 10th year in 2019 with many members from both communities.
Thank you to all staff who came to lend their support and bring their families on the day and a big thank you to the staff who were involved in the organising of the day: Ms Dominica Jenkins, Mrs Emma Hughes and Ms Elizabeth Williams.
Finally, thank you to all of our lovely students who hosted our friends with warmth and enthusiasm.
