Delicia has demonstrated a real commitment to volunteering.  She currently volunteers in the School Tuckshop and Uniform Shop and also volunteers at the local Animal Welfare Shelter at the week-end.  She has also encouraged one of her classmates to volunteer with her at the animal shelter. 

Delicia’s volunteering experience is helping her to have more self-confidence when communicating. 

Her goal is to work in Childcare. 

Her teacher, Mr Michael Armstrong (photo) has said “Delicia regularly puts herself out there to help others and has shown great initiative during her volunteering.”
