    Casual Day

    Project Compassion – Casual Day

    To help raise funds to support ‘Project Compassion’ our school will hold its first casual clothes day for the year on Thursday March 28th.  

    Project Compassion’s theme for this year is 100% Hope, and we want our College to ‘Be the Difference’ by raising much needed funds to support this cause.

    Earlier in the term, members of the G11 attended a Caritas Justice Leadership conference at Sacred Heart College.  We heard about the work Caritas does to empower communities with hope and help those in great need to shape a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

    After last year’s success, each year level leaders have come up with ideas for either the whole school or year level activities which will be conducted on the day. Some of the activities planned this year include a raffle, BBQ, cake stall and water drop challenge.

    We also encourage students to reflect on the clothes they are wearing and to consider who made their clothes and the conditions under which they were made (#whomademyclothes). Students may also be interested in bringing a few extra dollars for a BBQ lunch that will be provided by Year 11 students and staff.

    The Student Representative Council for 2019 are so excited to share our ideas with our school and hope it will be a fun day for the College.
