Caritas Day: Celebrating Compassion and Generosity in Action

Over the past weeks, our College community has come together in solidarity to support those in need, embodying the spirit of compassion and generosity that lies at the heart of the Lenten season.

Today our fundraising drive for Caritas Australia culminated in our very own Caritas Day. Students from our Service groups facilitated food and activity stalls to boost our donations. The Mercy Walk was abuzz at recess and lunch time, with students jostling around the stalls so as not to miss out on hot chips, ice cream, lollies and prizes. The stalls were ably managed by our Year 12 leaders and well supported by the student body.

Through a variety of creative and engaging activities, we have collectively worked to raise funds in support of Caritas Australia’s vital humanitarian work. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the dedication and generosity of our students, staff, parents, and wider community.

The funds raised will go towards supporting Caritas Australia’s projects around the world, empowering communities to overcome poverty, injustice, and inequality.

It’s not too late to donate – you can do so here.

As we celebrate the success of our Lenten fundraising activities, we express our gratitude to everyone who contributed their time, energy, and resources to make it possible. Whether you baked goods, participated in a challenge, or donated, your support has made a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Thank you for your incredible generosity and commitment to serving others.
