Caritas Just Leadership Day (Issue 6 2018)
Written on the 10 May 2018
Towards the end of Lent, Sacred Heart Middle School was fortunate enough to host a 'Caritas Just Leadership Day'. Year 6 and 7 students from Cabra Domincan College and the two middle school campuses, Marymount and Sacred Heart, came together to discuss issues around poverty and injustice in the world. Lead by Suzy Penberthy of Caritas, the students were able to see some of the terrible conditions, millions around the world live in every day, while they, themselves are among the most wealthy people. The students then brainstormed ways in which our three communities can participate in actions which can make a positive difference for those who are less fortunate. Apart from all the learning that happened, it was great to see the students from the three schools interacting, enjoying lunch together and playing games.
