Community Service Groups

The College encourages and develops the social conscience of the students, staff and parents alike who maintain and uphold values of justice and mercy based on Gospel values and Catholic Social Teachings. The College Service Groups work tirelessly to support specific Catholic agencies like Catholic Mission, Caritas, St Vincent de Paul, the Sisters of St Joseph Refugee and Asylum Seekers Agency and Mercy Works, to name but a few. The Service Groups and broader College community also extend their ministry to raising awareness and fundraising ventures for both the local and wider communities such as Daffodil Cottage, Breast Cancer Australia, Red Shield Appeal, Legacy, and the 2BS Bathurst Lions Christmas Miracle Appeal.
