From the Assistant to the Principal - Champagnat Project (Issue 11 2018)
Written on the 16 August 2018
We are in the midst of Marist Week at the Middle School! Marist Week is a significant week as it highlights our place in our large, global family and provides students and staff with the opportunity to make a difference. We launched Marist Week at Assembly on Monday and heard how many of our Marist brothers and sisters find themselves living amongst the wold's poorest.
Just like Marcellin, students and staff have been rolling up their sleeves and working hard to make a difference and doing what they can to help others in need. Among other things, Year 6's have been selling cakes, drinks and sausages; Year 7's have been busy selling donuts, chocolates and burgers; Year 8's have focused on Subway lunches, lunch time games and proceeds from previously sold Sacred Heart College Sport's Bags; and our Year 9's will be offering both a breakfast and lunch time offering on Friday. A vast array of tasty treats throughout the week that's for sure!
Late last term our Marist Captains identified that money raised throughout Marist Week 2018 would go towards helping LaValla School in Cambodia, one of the many project supported by Marist Solidarity. More recently, our Marist Captains felt that as a school community, it was important to donate a proportion of money raised this week to the Drought Appeal to help our struggling Australian Famers. Two very worthy causes indeed!
I thank and acknowledge the students, staff and parents who have so generously supported all that has occurred during Marist Week and for all the work that has gone on behind the scenes to ensure the week has been a great success!
Generous hearts, Sacred Heart.
