At St Francis School we promote a particular view of the human person, the community, the world, the environment centred on the person of Jesus Christ.
We grow together in Faith, Peace and Wisdom as we develop and celebrate an inclusive environment where right relationships and students' intellectual, spiritual, social and physical well-being is paramount in all we do.
Mr Rick Favilla, Principal
SOCIAL JUSTICE WEEK-CATHOLIC CHARITIES
Social Justice is at the heart of our faith. If God loves each person equally, then God must also want each of us to have an equal opportunity to flourish in this world.
During Social Justice Week at St Francis the actions of the students definitely made a difference in the lives of those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged. Through a variety of imaginative endeavours we have raised $2762.
These funds will be donated to the Catholic Charities Appeal, to support the Diocesan welfare agencies working with the homeless and the disadvantaged in our community. These include, Centacare & Catholic Family Service, Mercy House of Welcome, Hutt Street Centre, Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, Catherine House, Mary MacKillop Care Ain Karim, Catholic Deaf Association and St Patrick’s Special School and Our Lady of La Vang School.
(The donations inlcude money also raised in 2015).
