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.
Each year students dedicate their time and efforts to support the local, national and global community through fundraising and volunteering.
Each year the college supports ‘Caritas’ in its Project Compassion Appeal. Fundraising efforts have raised over $10,000 annually to support the many projects that Caritas funds worldwide.
