Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 9 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 10, 2008 19 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Hats off to busy students LAUREN MURADA Santa Sabina students Charlotte Fehon, Libby Mulcahy, Alex Galassi, Clara Lavermicicca, Jane Sulis (teacher) and Victoria Currsmith have knitted scarfs and hats for the homeless. Picture: BRENT McGILVARY STAFF and students from Santa Sabina College have been spending their Sundays knitting scarfs and beanies for the home- less. More than 60 winter woollies were dis- tributed to people in need on Sunday night when three senior students volunteered for the night patrol van. According to the school's director of social justice education Jane Sulis, night patrol is an initiative that's been running at the school for more than 20 years and involves students distributing food once a month. ''We get them (students) to understand that not everybody lives a nice, safe, comfortable, middle-class existence like they do,'' she said. The students have to be aged over 16 to participate although girls much younger wanted help out, Ms Sulis said. ''I've got to fight them off, I'm booked out to next February,'' she said. Year 12 student Victoria Currsmith said she found the experience very rewarding. ''The first time I went it was Easter Sunday and they were so grateful, not just for the food but for the company,'' she said. Only three girls can go on night patrol at a time, but a lot more people are involved with families making sandwiches and do- nating fruit. ''There's a cooking program where girls cook things like cookies and muffins and we freeze them and thaw them out on the Sunday,'' Ms Sulis said. The scarfs were made after one teacher left some patterns, wool and needles with a sign saying ''knit some scarfs for homeless people'' before the Easter school holidays. 2111896i iww wk2 Get your tickets for our movie event with Cheekie the Clown Wed. 16 July 2008 at 9am Kung Fu Panda (PG) Tickets available at the Customer Service desk $10 each what's on!
