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.
As part of our traditional commitment to the ethos of Mary MacKillop – never see a need without doing something about it – our school partakes in the following outreach programs:
- Mini Vinnies and supporting the local St Vincent de Paul Society
- Caritas – during Lent
- Focus on Catholic charities – in line with our community beliefs
- Pope Francis Award – commitment to service to the school and parish communities
- St Patrick’s Church Hill
- Catholic mission
