Mission Action Day
One of the most tangible examples of Social Justice at De La Salle is our Mission Action Day, often referred to as MAD Day by students.
In 2021, MAD Day was Thursday 1 April. The College raised $47,284.24 and these funds will be distributed to key Lasallian mission projects in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.
Students, parents, sponsors and staff worked closely together to once again make the event a success. Blessed with fine weather, under staff supervision, students walked approximately 13km along the Gardiner’s Creek Trail between Ashburton and Kooyong to validate the wonderful work done in raising close to $50,000, another amazing total in a challenging post COVID-19 environment.
Planning for Mission Action Day 2022 will soon be underway and as a community, we again look forward to going M.A.D. and continuing to do what we can for those who are in need of our assistance.
