As part of our Social Justice Awareness, LG4 students participated in a Mini St Vinnie's Sleepout. After a long day of learning, the students came back on a cold, dark night to our cold Assembly Hall. They were presented with cardboard boxes and old papers and they learnt to work together to build shelters for the evening.
The students were offered a small dinner consisting of a cup of soup and milo. The aim of the evening was to raise awareness of the youth homelessness and to also learn about the Works of Mercy and the different organisations that help to support the homeless in the community.
The students participated with enthusiasm and respect and the evening closed with the students writing a heartfelt letter to someone who is homeless, to offer them some hope.
Parents and staff kindly donated money to the St Vinnie's Sleepout who raise much needed funds for Vinnies homelessness services and help secure affordable housing for all Australians.
