This year, Northern Territory Catholic Education are supporting Project Compassion; Caritas Australia’s annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal. Each classroom hosts a collection every morning to give all students an opportunity to donate. Goal charts have been displayed around schools to show students how their hard work and generosity is contributing to a good cause.
Students who cannot donate are engaged in Project Compassion through prayer, giving 100% hope to support those less fortunate. They are also educated on how the funds are used to support those in need.
