Beanie, Scarf or Hat ?

Nepal Appeal Beanie Day for Nepal

 "Once again we are asked to respond with generosity to the humanitarian crisis faced by over 8 million people in Nepal. Caritas Australia has opened the Nepal Earthquake Appeal and I encourage your communities to support this appeal through solidarity in prayer and generous financial assistance." (Archbishop Hart)

In such overwhelming circumstances, our continued thoughts, prayers and support are with those affected by this devastating earthquake. In response however, the College Vinnies Conference hosted a fundraiser on Tuesday 12 May. They encouraged students to wear a fashionable beanie, scarf or hat with their full College Uniform for a gold coin donation.

The College will donate over $300 to the Caritas Australia Nepal Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund providing basic needs for Nepal earthquake victims.

  • $110 provides three families with water and sanitation kits.
  • 200 provides two families with food and hygiene packs.
  • $250 provides two families with critical emergency shelter.
