The Delpechitra Family

In the heart of Sydney’s west live the fun-loving Delpechitra family: dad Patrick, mum Tracey, eldest son Wendel, daughter Vestal and youngest son Ethan.

Patrick and Tracey are both from Sri Lanka and met not long after Tracey left school. 26-years-ago, they made the decision to move to Australia and have not looked back. Patrick works as a manager at the local RSL and Wendel is a teacher at the local Catholic boys' high school. Tracey manages the crazy life at home, first-year University student Vestal loves her dancing and Ethan is cricket mad, much like the rest of the family.

Despite the big age gap between the siblings, this is a tightknit family with a big sense of humour. When watching the television together they love chewing the fat over the latest reality television scandal, especially on My Kitchen Rules, Home & Away and The Bachelor Australia. They are also big fans of shows like X-Factor, especially Patrick who will jump any opportunity for a sing-along. Watching wildlife documentaries on National Geographic falls into family viewing, and of course, the cricket.
