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."
