Community News & Events
Last week we launched Caritas Project Compassion. This year's theme is "Food for Life" and
Lent is an ideal time for children to consider how they can help the world's poor by
contributing a small amount of money each week to help others. Lent is a time to consciously
make an effort to forgo luxuries for a while and reflect on appreciating our high standard of
living in Australia and consider how we can help others who are not as fortunate as
ourselves. Project Compassion boxes were distributed on Ash Wednesday and will be housed
in each classroom. The amount of money raised each week will be recorded on a poster in
the lunch area and announced at Assembly each week.
It was a great performance by our team who competed at the Catholic and West Zone Carnivals. Congratulations to Keeleigh and Mitchell who will represent West Zone at the Darling Downs Carnival on 4 March.
