Last Friday, our school community truly demonstrated how we can pull together to achieve amazing things. The students and teachers enjoyed a day of crazy socks, a sausage sizzle, zooper doopers and shooting goals. The students and teachers had so much fun, especially when the students were trying to shoot a goal against their teacher. We raised roughly $1,500 which will be donated to Catholic Mission to support families in Ethiopia facing malnutrition and food insecurity. These funds raised will help sustain and enrich the lives of vulnerable children who are in need of our support. Thank you to our community for working together to help those in need. “Together we can” do amazing things to answer God’s call to action.

The day culminated in a picnic with their parents where the children were able to show them the lovely Joey Park playground that they are fortunate enough to play in each day. Here are some pictures of the celebration.
