Project Compassion

$1957.00 was the final total raised for Project Compassion in Term 1. This will enable Caritas Australia to support programs that help the poor in Australia and the Oceania region. Funds were collected from the Project Compassion Boxes, Sausage Sizzle and Easter Raffle – well done and thank you to those who supported these events last term.

This term our fundraising efforts will support LifeLink agencies. The LifeLink organisation was established in 1994 to provide for the ongoing financial and promotional support of agencies established or assisted by the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Perth. A number of College representatives will be attending the launch of LifeLink Day 2021 for primary and secondary Catholic schools in Perth later this term. Please keep an eye out for events that will occur this term to raise funds for this worthy cause.

This group will continue to meet this term with the focus of planning a ‘Sleepout for Mercy Works’ next term. All students with a passion for social justice are invited to join this group – please see Notices in SEQTA Learn for further information.

MIA MAD 2021
All Senior School students have started their MIA MAD program for 2021. Students are reminded that all information regarding the program can be found on SEQTA Learn in the course: 2021 Year <Level> Mercy In Action – Making A Difference.

Year 11 Biology Embraces the Bush!
Gear up for adventure! Last week, our intrepid Year 11 Biology students swapped the classroom for the great outdoors, participating in a special field camp at Dwellingup alongside Mazenod College. This immersive experience provided a first-hand look at the fascinating world of ecological monitoring. Guided by the esteemed Mr. C, Environmental Educator of the Year, the students learned the art of fauna trapping – a crucial skill for understanding native animal populations. Just before sunset they set traps to capture nocturnal visitors, waking before dawn with anticipation to see what critters called the bushland home. Their efforts were rewarded with the exciting discovery of three Mardos and a curious Quenda! While the day brought a quite a bit of rain, the students’ spirits remained high as they delved into the techniques of flora surveys. Despite returning a little soggy, their knowledge and enthusiasm were truly enriched. This valuable camp experience forms the foundation for an exciting project back at St Brigid’s. The Year 11 biologists will now conduct a baseline flora survey of our very own school bushland. Armed with this data, they’ll then develop a conservation plan to ensure this precious ecosystem thrives for future generations. Stay tuned! We can’t wait to see the amazing results of their exploration and conservation efforts.
