During Lent, the St Martin’s community generously supports Caritas Australia during Project Compassion. The theme this year of ‘Love Your Neighbour’ highlights and supports the value of our school’s mission to find joy, through showing love in action.
Yesterday, I was privileged to attend the official 2017 Project Compassion Launch at St Stephen’s Cathedral with some of our Year Six Leaders. We attended a special mass presided by Archbishop Mark Coleridge and then enjoyed a delicious pancake morning tea in the shade of the Cathedral. Each of our leaders represented St Martin’s with pride and respect and I thank them for their positive contribution to this day.
We will launch the Project Compassion Appeal at our whole school assembly next Monday. More information about how you and your family can donate (including a new online option!) coming soon.
