Kannada Class - Mother's Day Celebration
08 June, 2023

VSL Kannada Class organised Mother's Day to celebrate the contribution of Mums on May 13th 2023. It was an effort to instil the gratitude in students about the value of parents. We had a great turnout of mothers , grandmothers and mother figures (aunt, older sister, etc) . Students presented the greeting card they had made in the class to their mums with special messages written in Kannada language. We had a cake cutting by mums, songs and other activities by students and some snacks and coffee for all. All the mothers and their children sat together and were given some games to play together. It was a very valuable time spent together!! We acknowledge yours and VSL staff support to make this a successful event. Thank you.

VSL Turkish/Syrian Earthquake Appeal 2023 update
02 May, 2023

We would like to thank everyone on behalf of the VSL and VSL School Council for your care, support and participation in the Turkish/Syrian Earthquake Appeal. The total amount raised so far is $4972.  

In response to the recent tragic earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, the VSL Area Northwest Teachers’ Meeting initiated an earthquake appeal on the 11 February 2023. The appeal was endorsed by the VSL Leadership and School Council. This involved participation from VSL Area Northwest and all VSL centres, including teachers, parents, and students, as well as other schools (Keilor Downs weekday School and Kardinia International College - Social Justice Committee)  

The VSL community has been deeply affected by this natural disaster. Across the Turkish and Arabic languages, far too many families and teachers know people who have been impacted, both directly and indirectly, by the earthquakes and their aftermath. One of our VSL teachers lost many members of her family, and some VSL families have travelled to Türkiye and Syria to support their homeland communities.  

Generous contributions continue to be made for our VSL Northwest staff member who has been directly impacted by the earthquake. The other earthquake campaigns that the VSL endorsed for our earthquake appeal, as outlined in our ‘Türkiye-Northern Syria – Fund-Raising Campaign Letter’ are as follows: 

For anyone wishing to contribute, we encourage you to show your support if you are able to do so.
