School Community Partnership Agreement

This is an agreement between the staff of St Mary’s College, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their parents/caregivers/ families.

We agree to work together so that all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have the optimal start in life. Students’ talents and abilities should be fully developed so that they achieve their potential at school.

Caritas Australia’s is the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development. It strives to* End Poverty, *Promote Justice and *Uphold Dignity.

We are grateful that the St Mary's College Community have always generously embraced the annual Lenten fundraising and awareness- raising appeal, Project Compassion, which brings together thousands of Australians in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity

We are so proud of our students who embrace this project with their listening hearts and who are inspired to "be more" for the sake of poor people in our world.

In the words of Pope Francis "Cultivate with love the seeds of goodness, beauty and truth that God sows in every new generation"

In addition to the many creative fundraising events planned, we have created our very own link as an easy opportunity for anyone to donate online via the web.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible and we are setting our St Mary's College goal at $2000. Two weeks left until Easter - WE CAN DO IT!
