Social Justice Stationery Drive

During Term 4 and in the lead up to the end of the school year, we are challenged to think of others and to work together to make a difference. The whole school is involved in a Stationery Drive donation to our schools in Papua New Guinea through the Lasallian Foundation. Students are asked to donate any of the following items:

  • Folders
  • Pens – that work
  • Pencils – lead and colour
  • Textas/crayons
  • Pencil cases
  • Eraser/rulers/sharpeners/scissors/safety glasses
  • Calculators

All items will be accepted from today and are to be placed in the Kinnoull or Tiverton library where there will be a box located next to the printer. During locker clean up in the last week of school, boxes will be placed for collection along the corridors for final donations. We ask that you support all students in their endeavour to show solidarity and bring hope to the needy, poor and vulnerable members of our local community.

With thanks on behalf of the Year 11 VCAL students.

Richmond’s Big Chop – Monday 26 November

Richmond Bagnall will become a De La Salle College student next year, when he commences in Year 7, 2019. Before he begins at the College, Richmond is doing something truly special for charity and wanted to share this with his new school community.

On Monday 26 November, during the school assembly at Holy Rosary School, Kensington, Richmond’s hair will be cut. His hair will be donated to Variety Hair with Heart, to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition. Through this initiative, Richmond is also raising money for, and awareness of, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation; whose mission is to keep children safe from violence.

Please take a moment to check out Richmond’s Everyday Hero page. If you are able to make a donation, Richmond and his family would be extremely appreciative. Well done Richmond!
