The St Bernard’s College Social Justice Program focuses on the things that will make a difference to others: generosity, reconciliation, protection of the weak, forgiveness, expressions of gratitude, inclusion, sharing of resources and service.The Social Justice Network was established in 2012 - it is made up of parents who believe in encouraging and facilitating our own and our sons’ interest and involvement in social justice. By being involved in the Network, we seek to actively participate and role model this commitment.Some of our volunteer opportunities include:
- supporting the organisation of annual speaker events;
- providing volunteers every Tuesday night for the St Vinnies Soup Van; and
- offering support when needed for the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project.
Usually we meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month in the Boardroom and welcome any new parents who might want to join. (Our first meeting for 2019 will be on 27th February and thereafter, every third Wednesday of each month.)
The motto of St Bernard’s is ‘Discere et Agere’ – to learn and to do.
Through the SBCSJN we seek to meet the challenge of what will we can DO to make a difference.
