My son Leo is in his last few weeks at St Edmunds school for the intellectually disabled in Wahroonga. He’s been there of 5 years and my family and I would like to say thank you to the school and staff by raising a little money so that they can continue to help other children.
My eldest son Sam left school 2 years ago. It was an exciting time finding out his ATAR and choosing a University. Things are going to be a little different for Leo but because of the ground work put in place by St Edmunds, Leo has a good chance of finding work and becoming a contributing member of our society.
Our family is no stranger to odd adventure holidays. There was the Hawkesbury River raft (in the torrential rain) and the Murray River Cat-canoe (in swarms of mosquitoes). This time we are hoping the sun will shine as we are attempting to go down the Hawkesbury River in the world’s first solar powered house boat. She’s called the Mothership and is a little bit fancy. If you see us going pass please swim over and say hi.
Not every young person will become a scientist, carpenter, architect, nurse, electrician, etc. But all deserve a fair go of landing a job that they find rewarding and contributes to the community at large. St Edmunds is a place that gives children like Leo a fighting chance.
If you are able to spare a few dollars, please do so.
Tim, Sue, Sam, Leo and Poppy
