Catholic Education in the tradition of St Marcellin Champagnat

Holiday Program Sacred Heart College, Johannesburg

The Three2Six program run by a Marist school, Sacred Heart College, in Johannesburg, South Africa provides an education bridging program for children who have been denied access to local public schools. Most of the children are from Central Africa and live in very difficult conditions, their families struggling for survival. 

Australian volunteers (over 18 years of age), interested in supporting young refugee children in South Africa to access education, life skills and fun are being sought to assist with a two week holiday program in Johannesburg from 25 August - 7 September 2013.   

Please make this known to younger staff members at your school and ex-students who may be interested.  An overview of Three2Six done by AFP media outlet is provided here.
