Mater Day was back onsite this term, for the first time in three years. This is traditionally one of our biggest celebrations of the year - a time when we celebrate community and raise money for people in need, supporting the  important work of the Good Samaritan Sisters.

The Good Sams support women and children who experience hardship and/or conflict in Australia and overseas. They work with communities in the Philippines, Kiribati and Timor Leste, and closer to home in Santa Teresa, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Friends and family were invited to sponsor a Year level in their fundraising endeavours, with the group raising the most money being rewarded with exclusive use of the Year 12 lounge for a week. Luckily for the Year 12s they came out in the lead and held on to the space.

The day began with a whole College Mass - joining together in prayer and song, to celebrate the Assumption of Mary.

This was followed by all the fun of the fair, with teacher dunking, bubble soccer, rides, face painting, food trucks and more.

To finish up, our House Performing Arts Competition (HPAC) unveiled a wealth and variety of talent, and was the perfect conclusion to our community celebration.

Thank you to all involved - those who organised, participated, donated - you truly reflected the spirit of Mater Day 2022, supporting the work of the Good Sams.
