Mission Action Day – 8th April 2022

The tradition of Mission Action Day continued on the final day of Term 1 with a day filled with community spirit. We drew on the guiding principles of the College and lived the words of St Eugene De Mazenod ‘We have but one heart, one soul’ as we came together to raise funds to support the work of the Oblate Fathers. The students immersed themselves in the day that included an Easter liturgy, a walkathon and a wide range of fundraising activities. The traditional favourites including chocolate toss, laser tag and pizza continued to raise funds for the Oblates and this year they were joined by newcomers including a Souvlaki stall, Virtual Reality gaming and an inflatable obstacle course.

Thanks to the many people involved in organising and running MAD. From setting up stages and equipment, preparing a powerful Easter liturgy, planning logistics for all students to safely complete the walkathon, organising games and activities, ordering food, coordinating raffle prizes, preparing money floats and then actually running the day itself, the workload is shared by many willing contributors whose efforts are appreciated.

Thanks to families for their generous financial donations! Also, a particular thanks to those who provided prizes for the Raffles – your contributions made for an amazing range of items to be won. Please make an effort to support the families and businesses who so kindly supported our fundraising for the Oblates on Mission Action Day.
