Cool Stories Supper

13 MAY 2015 Back to News

School was transformed with rugs, throws, lanterns and candlelight into a relaxing venue for our social justice evening at St. Joseph’s. Hot chocolates were served alongside a delicious supper. Our evening called Cool Stories Supper offered a smorgasbord of inspiration and thought provoking stories, artwork, music and spoken word poetry leaving us moved and challenged. Thank you to Will Small http://www.willsmall.com.au/ a local artist who performed poetry for us. Will is a writer with an ear for rhythm, a heart for justice and a belief in the human act of storytelling. Thank you to Danielle Habib, an advocate for asylum seekers and refugees. Danielle shared some heartbreaking stories about two beautiful individuals from Villawood Detention Centre, who have suffered beyond measure. Thank you Hilda Bezuidenhout, a local Central Coast photographer who grew up in South Africa during apartheid which gave her a great sense for social justice.  Hilda shared some of her powerful and moving photographic images with us. Talent abounds amongst our own students too. Our students spoke, performed, created films, cooked, served and decorated the space. Our Cool Stories supper was indeed a wonderful community night.
