Missions of St Vincent
Membership of this Community Service group provides students with opportunities to channel their generosity, share their talents and learn new ones. It is also a great way of making new friends across all year levels.

Being involved in one of the Community Service groups is an excellent way of developing leadership skills as well as having fun while helping to make the lives of others a little better.

Students who have a talent that they would be willing to share or who would like to learn a new skill and make new friends, should consider joining one of the groups at the College.

Activities

Students are involved with the following associated Groups: Ozcare, Ronald McDonald House, Mitchelton Special School, St Paul’s Nursing Home, and Rosie’s Outreach.

A few of the ways students have responded to the needs of people within our local and wider communities include:

  • making wraps and tiny beanies for premature babies at the Mater Mothers’ Hospital
  • baking cakes and biscuits, and visiting and entertaining residents at local nursing homes
  • craft work of various kinds, including making and writing cards
  • writing letters to students at a school in East Timor

In Term 4 each year, the annual Christmas Appeal for the St Vincent de Paul Society is organised. Toiletries are collected to make gift parcels for the local parishes to distribute

Meetings

Meetings are held regularly during the term usually at lunchtime, with a monthly get-together after school to celebrate birthdays and focus on the project at hand that month. Students are elected to service positions within the group at the start of each year.
