ACU holiday fun for refugee kids

Published: Monday 29th June 2015

The ACU Holiday Program which is an annual Community Engagement event will run on Tuesday 30 June from 9am-4pm. Approximately 90 children from refugee backgrounds living at the Atherton Gardens Estate, will spend the day at ACU where they will take part in a range of planned activities within the university.

For most of the day we will be using the majority of level 2 in the Mary Glowrey Building as well as the Mercy Lecture Theatre and Cathedral Hall.  A running sheet with times and locations for your convenience. You are most welcome to join in any of the activities and your friendly smile would be most appreciated by the children.
