Sr Hermione of the Resurrection Sisters with Des. Sr Hermione works tirelessly preparing a container of school supplies for Tanzania.
 
On Tuesday DES picked up school books from Tereasa from St Patrick’s school Lilydale.

Lower primary are first infant readers are the books most requested in the educational aisle. At this moment we are being asked to provide school materials and books for children learning English in Tonga, Solomon Islands, Samoa, Tanzania, Kiribati and East Timor. 10 years ago, not long after I started volunteering in the aisle we were donated about 10 of these “giant” beautiful big books. They were immediately snapped up by an educational project. Never have we been donated any since. Often I have been asked for them. Recently, Isabel from RC Kew requested a couple for Nepal and it was sad to reflect that for 10 years we had not had any in stock.

To have Des arrive with a whole van load was incredible and so heartening. We will incrementally share these treasures with various teams providing resources. They really are the most valuable resource that could be provided in a school learning basic English.

On behalf of the many schools that will benefit from these beautiful books may I say a huge thankyou"
