As we strive to be a place of transformation in the risen Christ, we have a genuine concern for justice. In addition to the Giving Life programme, the College fosters connections with a variety of Catholic organisations that work towards achieving justice in our local community and the world. Through organisations such as Saint Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies), Caritas Australia and Catholic Mission, students are provided with opportunities to grow in their understanding of social issues, and challenged to respond and act in light of the Gospel message.
The College SleepOut is an important event at Holy Cross College. Each year on a winter’s night, students from Years Five – Twelve have the opportunity to stay at school, having their dinner at a soup kitchen, participating in activities to help them understand more about homelessness and ‘sleeping out’. In the earlier part of the evening, students in other Junior School year levels also have the opportunity to participate in activities. Money raised from the SleepOut is donated to LifeLink.
