Special Events

Caritas produces special resources for Lent in autumn and Social Justice Week in spring each year. Your teachers will have more details about these. In addition, we also promote:

Singout4Justice - a song writing competition for Years 7-10 and Years 11-13 students. Watch out for competition details in November.

Mufti Mania Days - Mufti Mania Days in primary schools have helped schools in Samoa and Papua New Guinea. In 2013 funds will go to Tonga to help people there face the challenge of climate change.

St Francis of Assisi feast day - We have developed a plan to celebrate the Feast of St Francis of Assisi in the last week of term three.
