AUSTRALIA : SCHOOL CHILDREN MAKE CHRISTMAS BAGS FOR REFUGEES

ARCHDIOCESE OF MELBOURNE REPORT: Our Lady of Victories School, Camberwell 'dream bags' Print E-mail

Wednesday 21 December 2011

dream-bags-350Students in the Senior Class at Our Lady of Victories School in Camberwell hope to brighten the Christmas for a number of our asylum seekers with their ‘Dream Bags’.
The ‘Dream Bags’ are the result of a unit of work around Asian literacies and more specifically the practice of bags of goodies which were distributed to children who were the victims of war to cheer them up. The children created these gifts with the help of their teacher, Mrs Karen Gosling, and mums who made the bags, packing them with a number of treasures. Colin, from the Salvation Army and an Asylum Seekers Resource Centre representative, was only too happy to come and collect the bags and assure the children that the bags would be greatly appreciated by the children of asylum seekers.
