We respectfully acknowledge, and pay our respects to the Elders of the Kulin Nation, both past and present, as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School is situated.
Today we launch into a very important Season in the Catholic Calendar- The Season of Lent. In conjunction with this, we REFLECT, RESPOND and ACT in different ways. Caritas Australia helps to end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity for all. The two words project and compassion are ideal for us to understand poverty cannot just end- it becomes a PROJECT for all of us as we endeavour to show COMPASSION to those less fortunate than ourselves.
In support of Project Compassion each grade will receive a Project Compassion box so we learn to save money and to SERVE others. Families will also receive a Box to remind us to give to others.
This Year - we give - For all Future Generations- what a beautiful thought to think about the future generations to come and how we can help NOW.
All Project Compassion boxes should be returned to the classroom/office by Monday 4 April.
