Loreto Day News

We are supporting the House of Welcome for Loreto Day 2018!

Over the coming weeks the community will learn more about  the cause that we have chosen to support this year, the House of Welcome. We will also better understand the power and significance of giving to others in need. This is one way that we, as a school, can address the issue of poverty in the world and raise awareness of the needs for others in our broader community.

House of Welcome is a project of St Francis Social Services that welcomes, shelters and empowers asylum seekers and refugees. House of Welcome relies on community support as they don’t receive government funding. Each year it supports over 300 people by providing basic needs for refugees and asylum seekers. You can view our Year 11 presentation to the school on House of Welcome here.

Loreto Day is on Friday 1 June 2018 and is a much anticipated event held at the school every year run by Year 11 students. All proceeds raised through the stalls on the day, the concert in the afternoon and initiatives  run to raise funds before and after the day, such as the silent auction, go towards the House of Welcome.

Silent auction

Attached is a letter   providing some information about the 2018 Loreto Day cause and calling for any donations from parents for our silent auction.

Your donation will help the House of Welcome and provide much needed resources.

We will keep the community updated of our progress every week as we count down to Loreto Day 2018 – Friday 1 June.

We look forward to your ongoing support of Loreto Day.
