Holy Family Parish
OUR LADY OF THE WAY IS TWINNED WITH THE HOLY FAMILY PARISH IN EMERTON, A JESUIT PARISH IN WESTERN SYDNEY. THE TWO PARISHES COLLABORATE IN CREATING OPPORTUNITIES AND SHARED EXPERIENCES.
For a number of years now Holy Family Primary School at Emerton has had a very dedicated group of volunteers from St Mary's North Sydney. These volunteers have come on a regular basis to help our children with their English and Maths. Some of our children start school with a deficit in language so they need a lot of support.
This volunteering is very rewarding, as we can help to give them a good start in life. Holy Family is appealing for more volunteers to come and work with them.
ACTIVITIES AT HOLY FAMILY SCHOOL EMERTON, MT DRUITT
Volunteers from OLW parish continue to support the teachers at Holy Family School Emerton by assisting the children with their reading, comprehension and listening activities.
The children, who are aged between 5 and 9 years, are very welcoming and enjoy the interactions with volunteers. Many have learning problems and appreciate thr one to one involvement.
Holy Family Primary School is determined to ensure that no child will leave the school without being able to read and write to a satisfactory standard. The class teachers are also welcoming and appreciative of our support.
It is an easy trip along the M2 and M7 to the school, where volunteers typically spend three hours there before a happy drive home sharing the stories of the morning.
