Our Narnia Community
At Narnia Waratah we work closely with the wider St Philips Christian College Community and celebrate and participate in many of their school and community events.
These events include Book Week, Festival of Crazy Ideas, ANZAC service, Mother’s and Father’s Day events to name a few.
Some events we also currently support within our community is Pyjama Day to raise awareness of childhood Asthma. Our families also hold Bunning’s Barbeques to raise some money to subsidise visiting performers and to assist with our sponsor child.
Narnia Christian Preschool Gosford each year partake in various community based events such as Pj day in support of the local organization Coastal Shelter, Book Week and the Scholastic Book Fair, Crazy Sock Week, Teddy Bears Picnic, Special Person’s Morning/Afternoon Tea Events and different musical events held by St Philip’s Christian College Community. These are just some of the varying events we take part in to show our support for local and global events occurring in around our preschool.

Our Sponsor Child at Narnia Gosford
Moses Raju aged 12, now in 8th class comes from a very poor family. His family includes both parents and one brother. His parents earn a living by working as wage-labor in farms. They often migrate to far-off places for wages and cannot concentrate on children’s education. They also remain jobless during off-season. They live in a A/c sheet shed with clay walls. Inorder to provide quality study facilities for this boy, his parents decided to admit him into Miriam Children’s Home.
Narnia families have committed to paying sponsorship each month for these two boys, which covers food, clothes, accommodation and education in a Christian School. Our families regularly contribute money via the money boxes at Narnia. We encourage the children to look beyond themselves and to learn the principle of giving to others. The children learn about Moses and Suvarna and their homes in India.
