St Francis School
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.

SOCIAL JUSTICE WEEK-CATHOLIC CHARITIES
2020: This year student initiatives during Social Justice Week included a Reception Coin for a KM Walk; Year 1 coins for Caring Activity; Year 2 Lorax Activity Day; Year 3 Board Games; Year 4 Photo Gallery; Year 5 Colouring Competition; Year 6 Arcade Games & Lolly Bags. This year they raised a phenomenal $2889!
Please see photos below which include those from St Francis' Social Justice Week initiatives over the past few years as well as this year. For the School 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 make a difference in the lives of those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged.
These funds are donated to the Catholic Charities Appeal, in order to support the Diocesan welfare agencies working with the homeless and the disadvantaged in our community. These include, Centacare & Catholic Family Service, Hutt Street Centre, Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, Catherine House, Calvary:Ain Karim, Catholic Deaf Association and St Patrick’s Special School and Our Lady of La Vang School.
Catholic Charities would like to extend a big thankyou to all staff and students who make their Social Justice Week activities possible. Thank You!
(The donations inlcude money raised since 2015)
