Faces of Project Compassion - First Week of Lent  
We begin our annual Lenten Project Compassion journey by learning about the story of Jamila and her family.  Jamila, 22, is a Rohingya woman, living in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.  A single mother, she fled armed conflict in Myanmar to save herself, her elderly mother and eight-month-old baby. 

With the support of Caritas Australia, through Caritas Bangladesh, Jamila was able to access emergency food and shelter. She also received counselling, emotional support and learnt sewing skills, to help her earn an income.  Jamila now feels less alone, with a sense of community around her. She is able to ‘Be More’ to her little family.  

860,494 people remain in the densely populated camps, in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, especially due to COVID-19.

On Friday 12 March, we will be raising funds for Project Compassion through a Coin Day organised by the SRC.  Please save any silver and/or gold coins for this day, as every little bit helps.  It will also be a Casual Clothes Day as the Parent Network is organising a FREE Daytime Disco for all students.

Ash Wednesday – 17 February

The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which also marks the beginning of the annual Caritas Australia Project Compassion Appeal.  Donations to Project Compassion allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development, to work with local communities around the world to alleviate poverty, hunger, oppression and injustice.  This year, Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion theme is ‘Be More’.   It challenges us to venture into a new experience of compassion, and is taken from the invitation of St Oscar Romero, to “Aspire not to have more, but to be more.”

Greetings!

You are so important to your child.

Sometimes they have waited from the moment you dropped them off in the morning for the moment you will pick them up in the afternoon. 

Sometimes they are bursting with joy and excitement to share their day with you.

Sometimes sadness has been filling their little heart from something that happened in the day and they need you to just love them and be present for them.

And some days are just so ordinary that to see your face and have your attention is all that is required from you.

No matter what the story, the child that you are coming to pick up at the end of their school day loves you and wants your attention.

I am throwing you a challenge… When you come into the school to pick up your child, put your mobile phone away (or even better, leave it in the car), greet your child with your eyes and your ears and your arms. Pay them the attention they crave and deserve. Listen to their stories, engage them in conversation, share each other’s day. The mobile phone conversation you aren’t having is nowhere near as important as the face-to-face conversation you are having with your precious child.
