Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.

A focus on social outreach provides opportunities for social justice groups to develop projects which encourage the school community to reach out to those in need. The Pope Francis Award program provides an opportunity for student evangelisation and encourages students to become active members of their faith.

The school continues its active service to those in need and encourages the belief that each person can make a difference in our world. Outreach opportunities include:

  • Caritas’ Project Compassion
  • Child sponsorship through the Christian Children’s Fund
  • Catholic Mission
  • St Vincent de Paul
  • Mini Vinnies
  • Junior Joeys
  • Pete’s Pals.
