Narooma Branch enjoyed the efforts of Narooma Public School Echidna class with Mrs Cross at their Polish International day held last Wednesday. Guest speaker John Voytas informed both members and students of Poland and found the children very informed and inquisitive. A big thank you to them. Monday 20th August at Cobargo School of Arts starting 10am the Far South Coast Group brings a day of entertainment and information. This combined music & drama International Day sees branches of the FSC Group sing, act, carry on before lunch, after partaking in a Polish – inspired meal and hearing about Poland ( country of study for 2018).
