The following letter has been sent to you from Dr Tim McDonald, the Director of Catholic Education here in WA. This letter communicates Catholic Education’s commitment to providing education to children in detention on Christmas Island. He highlights this as a moral obligation and reminds us that a basic education is a fundamental human right and in keeping with the Church’s long tradition of supporting the poor and marginalised.
I would urge you all to please make the time to read this letter and to keep all those involved in your thoughts and prayers.
Regards, Tania Thuijs
