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.
Social Justice and outreach programs are an active part of school life. We have a strong outreach program that supports global, archdiocesan and local initiatives. These include Caritas through ‘Project Compassion’, Catholic Missions and the Charitable Works Fund (CWF).
The school has a special connection with the Good Samaritan Sisters who were our founding religious order. We regularly raise funds for the Good Samaritan sisters.
Our connection with the St Vincent de Paul Society is extremely strong supporting both their winter and Christmas appeals. Students are also members of Mini Vinnies which is a local program for young children who are keen to support those in need.
