Casuarina Steiner School mums share food and new friendships

CASUARINA Steiner School in Coffs Harbour has started a unique venture to strengthen ties with the migrant community.

For some time parents have taken it in turns to run a café every Friday afternoon after school.

Spokesperson Britt Richards said that with help from Anglicare North Coast a multicultural cafe has been introduced to make a wonderful connection with migrant women from a refugee background.

"We think this is the start of a new relationship that will see the multicultural cafe become a regular event for us at the school and will help migrants settle in as part of our community," Britt said.

"It's a lovely way to build community and spend some social time at the end of each week.

"This inaugural joint café was a wonderful success.

"Food prepared by the ladies was traditional from their mother country and was a taste sensation.

"Activities like this help our school and the local community to connect and build relationships and we feel it sets a wonderful example to our students."
