Making A Difference for Asylum Seekers

September 3, 2018

Students from St Cecilia’s Catholic School Balgowlah took part in their annual drive to donate food and toiletry items to the Asylum Seekers Centre in Newtown.

The Centre provides practical and personal support for people seeking asylum while living in the Sydney community.

 “We strive to draw on and continue the work done by the founders of our school, the Good Samaritan Sisters, by reaching out with compassion and justice to people in need within and beyond our immediate community,” said St Cecilia’s Principal, Fran Taylor.

“The donation drive is an opportunity for teachers and parents to connect with each other and with the community, and for children to learn about and engage with those in need.”
