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 we are involved with Night Patrol, contribute to the Vinnies Winter and Christmas Appeals. Our very active Mini Vinnies Student Association meets up regularly to work on projects and raise awareness on current issues in our community. We also contribute to Caritas and the Catholic Mission through gold coin fundraising initiatives.
