Our very first Welcome Dinner in a school!
Reflection by Kim Cootes (Fairfield Public School):
On Thursday 31 March, Fairfield Public School hosted their first Welcome Dinner. This was the first Welcome Dinner to be held in a school setting since the inception of the Welcome Dinner Project. Over 70 people were welcomed to the school hall including established and recently arrived families. Everyone took part in a range of getting to know you activities and shared food from their culture. Many stories were told with love, laughter and support for each other. We were honoured to be part of this wonderful event and hope to host a Welcome Dinner again soon.
