Presentation to Edmund Rice Community & Refugee Services

Thu   10-09-2015

At the ERCRS Volunteers’ Dinner, held on 10th September, ERCRS was able to publically thank all those committed people who had freely given of their time and skill, to help tutor young people of a refugee or disadvantaged background. These young people often require tutoring support on a one-to-one basis, in order to reinforce and explain what has been taught in class. Currently, ERCRS has some 125 primary studentsregistered over the four sessions that operate each week, and another 62 secondary students receiving learning support in two other sessions offered weekly. Two of the primary learning support sessions are located in Sunshine Harvester Primary School (SHPS), and ERCRS operates these sessions in partnership with the school. At the Volunteers’ Dinner, a representative from Sunshine Harvester Primary School, presented a painting to ERCRS, as a way of acknowledging the contribution that ERCRS had made over three years. As she presented the painting, Chris Durbridge, the EAL coordinator at SHPS, explained its significance. The artist, Danny Lewis, is a social worker who works closely with the staff in the school to support disadvantaged children. In the painting he has listed the name of every student of SHPS who has been enrolled in the Homework Club over the three years of operation. We were pleasantly surprised and very grateful to receive such a gift, which will be displayed in our office in St. Albans.
