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.
St Francis Xavier – the patron Saint of our community – and Pope Francis’ message for the preferential option for the poor, has underpinned the school’s ongoing support to those in need. This is evident through our outreach efforts in the community, such as fundraising for Caritas and the Charitable Works Fund, as well as our student-led Mini Vinnies group
