Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.

Students at St. Brendan’s have an opportunity to participate in a variety of Social Justice initiatives across the school.

Student groups such as Pope Francis students, Mini-Vinnies and Captiv8 teams work together to promote Social Justice initiatives and raise money for a variety of organisations throughout Australia and the world.

Some of these organisations include, St. Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal, Mary MacKillop foundation, Operation Christmas Child, CARITAS Project Compassion, Charitable Works Fund and St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal.

Students work in collaboration with teachers to develop the school community’s awareness and empathy for those in need through prayer and reflection. They promote, organise and run these fundraising events.
