Supporting our Hills Community

 

As you are all aware, the recent storms had a severe impact on the  Dandenong Ranges. They caused significant disruptions and challenges to the lives of families in the area and especially to those already experiencing other hardships.

Students in the Catholic Action Program (CAP) organised a bake sale and a Casual  Dress for a Cause day on Friday to raise funds to purchase food vouchers to be distributed to local families by Vinnies volunteers.

Students secure grant to fund Indigenous garden

 

Work will soon begin on a new garden on the grounds of the College, designed to build relationships with our local Indigenous community, and raise awareness of Indigenous culture and history.

The project comes about thanks to our Catholic Action Program (CAP) Class of 2020, who formulated the idea and made a submission to the Rerum Novarum Awards program last year, in the hope of securing a grant.

SoJuSt Week

 

Recently, as a school community, we participated in Social Justice & Stewardship (SoJuSt) Week. Students engaged in a variety of challenges that focused on creating something in the areas of sustainability and environmental awareness.

Support our students to build communities

This Friday, the Mater Christi College community will be awash with colour as we celebrate Mater Day and raise money for communities in need.

We are asking families and friends of the College to sponsor the event with funds raised going towards the work of the Good Sams.
