St Pius Reading Club Returns for 2023
This week our Year 10 students returned to St Pius X Primary School to assist St Vincent de Paul with the reading program.

OLMC students joined with Vinnie’s volunteers to work with students to help with their reading. Our new group of Year 10 volunteers did not hesitate to jump straight into developing positive relationships with their buddies. Our girls demonstrated empathy and compassion beyond their years in working with the children to encourage positive associations with reading and learning. When thinking about our school’s scriptural theme this year, ‘And, who is my neighbour?’ (Luke 10:29), our Year 10 students have revealed themselves to be very much the neighbours Jesus invites us to be.

Exodus Community Dinner
Six Year 11 and 12 students put their hands up last Thursday to participate in the second Exodus Dinner for the year.

We cooked up a scrumptious Chicken Schnitzel and Baked Potato dinner and enjoyed conversations with the families in the Exodus Community.

This program will run fortnightly and is supported by an incredible team of teachers and staff, coordinated by Marie Jenkins.

Social Justice Club
What an incredible turn-out for our first two meetings. So much energy, passion and ideas! The Eco Justice Team are planning towards Eco Justice Day at the end of Term 1 where we will raise awareness for how we can all do small things to make a big change.

This Wednesday was International Women’s Day. The Social Justice Club helped to raise awareness of this day by making thousands of Purple Ribbons during their lunchtimes and handing these out on the day to every student and staff member. Purple is the colour chosen to denote justice and dignity for all women.
