Kolbe Catholic College in Rockingham held its inaugural LifeLink Day Fair on August 10.
LifeLink is a coalition of welfare agencies supported by the Catholic Church.
The initiative of Archbishop Hickey, who established it in 1994, LifeLink seeks to provide financial support to 12 welfare groups in the Church, such as the Daydawn Advocacy Centre, the Emmanuel Centre and Catholic Migrant Services.
More than 31,000 families were helped last year by these agencies.
While on their retreat, the Year 11 students spent time reflecting about how to promote and support some of the agencies.
Their ideas were given further consideration during the early part of term 3 and they went to work during Week 3 to prepare for our LifeLink Fair.
Raffles, stalls, handing out leaflets – even shouting into a PA system “No to homelessness!” every 30 seconds for 15 minutes – proved to be draw cards in the avenue and around the school during lunch time on Friday.
Teachers and school staff commended the Year 11 students on achieving their goal to raise awareness of LifeLink’s work in the community.
