The Junior School and Senior School are consciously combining on social justice projects in 2023. For example during Lent, the College raised over $9000 for Caritas Australia. This money will have a profound impact on their mission to alleviate poverty and promote social justice. With these funds, Caritas Australia can implement clean water and sanitation projects, improve food security, respond to emergencies effectively, and support education and skills training programs. This donation will empower vulnerable communities, provide essential resources, and contribute to sustainable development.

In Term 2, the Winter Appeal is targeting clothing and food donations for St Vincent de Paul and the Adelaide Day Centre. In less than three weeks, 4 car loads of food supplies, 7 wheelie bins of clothing and over 50 blankets and warm jackets have been distributed to those in need. Critically we are responding as a College to the need that exists now. We are all aware of the cost of living crisis which is presenting for not only our families but those on the margins. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.

Junior School items can be taken to student classrooms and placed in allocated baskets.
Senior School items can be delivered to the Faith and Service Hub.

Thank you in anticipation,
