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.

Our Sponsor Child at Narnia Port Stephens
David, aged 4, attends a preschool class. His father died and he lives with his mother and 2 brothers. He lives in a tiny 2 room, mud brick hut. His mother earns money from selling beads that she has made. They live in a very remote area in rural Uganda.
Narnia families have committed to paying sponsorship each month for these to three 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, David and Suvarna and their homes in India.
