Every Friday at lunch time, students from McAuley Catholic College at Clarenza (Grafton) lend a hand at the South Grafton School of Arts Soup Kitchen, serving up meals to those in need.
The year 11 and 12 students set up a community breakfast program last year every Friday morning in the grounds of St Patrick’s Catholic Church, South Grafton.
The students weren’t getting too many at the breakfasts and when they discovered that the School of Arts nearby were holding a regular soup kitchen, they offered to join forces and work with them.
Leader of Pedagogy (learning) at McAuley Catholic College, Louise Maybury said that the students who usually man the soup kitchen, were tied up in exams at the moment.
“It’s usually our year 11 and 12 students who man the soup kitchen, but we have some of our year 10 students here today,” she said.
With more young people involved in couch surfing (sleeping over at friends homes on a regular basis rather than at home) the students hope to reach out to those in the community who are doing it tough.
