BRIDGE WITH OUR NEWEST NEW ZEALANDERS

Settlement Centre 001 Jane Stearns is currently delivering bridge lessons to 17 refugees and migrants as part of the curriculum this term for the advanced ESOL course at Hamilton Settlement Centre. From Jane: "The students are from Afghanistan, Syria, Colombia, Congo, Hong Kong, Korea, Pakistan and one Cambodian monk.  Many thanks to my co-volunteers drawn from members of both Cambridge and Hamilton Clubs who give their time to help this venture. Huge thanks also to NZB and the Hamilton Bridge Club who have generously agreed to waive their annual fees to enable refugees to join in the game and aid their integration into their local community. The classes are great fun and competitiveness runs very high at times!"
