Throughout Term 4, our College has warmly welcomed Mr Ogud Didumu Cham to our College as part of the Multicultural Australia “Work and Welcome Program". This program offers recently arrived refugees and immigrants an 8 to 10 week placement in an organisation to learn skills and transition into the workplace. It also offers a sense of hope, dignity and belonging for refugees and will enrich our school workforce and our whole community.
This year members of the College staff have, each fortnight, opted to make a donation to Multicultural Australia from their pay. These donations have allowed us, with the support of Brisbane Catholic Education, to employ Ogud for a fixed-term placement for Term 4.
Ogud has been an great asset to our College this term and has had the opportunity to share with staff and students his journey from a refugee camp to our College. Should you be interested in learning more about the work and welcome program please click here.
