We'd like to introduce our parent volunteers
Mrs Nadia Mihai, Mrs Mihaela Florean,
Mrs Fadwa Jarir and Mrs Ramona Ciurea, Mrs Olimpia Mironescu.
“Hi, my name is Mihaela Florean and I have two children, a girl in Year 3 and a boy in Reception. I completed a Nurturing program and it was easy to contact Neena Patel and join the PEP group at Camrose. I love to learn more about how the school works and help Romanian parents. I feel I can support Romanian families at Camrose as well as everyone.”
“Hi, my name is Nadia Mihai and my son is in Year 3. I was a teacher in Romania so I always wanted to get involved in helping the school so the opportunity came at the ’Healthy Eating Workshop’ where I heard about PEP. I contacted the school and now I am a member of an amazing team who are the bridge between the voice of the parents and the school.”
“I am Fadwa, mother of 4 children, My eldest daughter was a Camrose student before moving to Canons High School and my other two children are in Year 4 & 5. My youngest child will join Camrose in two years time. I was one of the first PEPs who joined three years ago and I’m still enjoying what I do. I was happy to be a part of the PEP group because I wanted to know what is happening at school and how the school are dealing with our children. Therefore I spend some time helping in classes and I was really surprised by how much goes on behind the scenes in a school. Being part of this group has helped me with my English and I have on many occasions interpreted for parent meetings as well as translated school information to children from Arabic backgrounds.”
