All students are expected to complete a minimum of 30 hours of Social Outreach over the two years they spend at the College. The philosophy behind this requirement is to help our students to look outward and to seek to use their gifts and talents for the benefit of others. Initiatives at the College include attending Brekky Van to provide breakfast to the homeless of Sydney, visiting the local nursing home, St Mary’s Villa and an Immersion in an Aboriginal Community. Social Outreach is a means of putting faith into action and encouraging our students to become more socially aware of ways that they can contribute to the wider community and to the less fortunate members of our society.
