StJPII Sock it to Poverty

To support Mission Sunday on October 21, the College took part in a social justice initiative called “Sock it to Poverty”. Staff and students were encouraged to come to school wearing crazy coloured socks on their feet and or hands as part of a gold coin donation.

This initiative is part of the Catholic Mission, to challenge schools to raise funds for those less fortunate than themselves. The money is used to tackle poverty, child labour, child trafficking, homelessness and lack of education in third world countries and provide for the poor in our community and around the world.

At Nirimba, in addition to wearing their crazy socks, Year 11 students enjoyed a bacon and egg sandwich and community spirit to show their support for this important cause.

They gave generously, raising an inspiring $340.
