Social Justice Program

‘With the servant leadership of Peter as our model, we aspire to strengthen the qualities of all those in our community so that they may lead with wisdom, compassion and courage’

St. Peter’s College has a strong tradition of Social Justice.

‘Walking in the footsteps of St. Peters, we will celebrate our Catholic faith founded on Christ’s message of love, justice and service’

“We have raised money, donated goods and walked alongside some of those living on the fringes of our society”

 


Introducing our College Social Justice Captains 2018

 

Emma Pocock, Social Justice Captain Cranbourne Campus

What are your goals for 2018?

For yourself in your role?

This year I want to inspire, others to give back to the community, I want to tell people that the “giving” doesn’t have to be $100, it could be something like helping for an hour at willow wood aged care which really puts a smile on the faces of the people who live there.

Personally?

Personally, I want to be pushed to do the best I can. I also want to be a good leader and role model to the younger year levels.

What would you like your legacy to be for St. Peter’s College?

To have continued to the works of the other social justice captains and created new projects that will run hopefully for years to come.

What are you immediate life ambitions and aspirations once you complete your studies at St. Peter’s College?

Go to St. Peter’s College Year 12 Solomon Island Immersion Trip

I want to get in to ACU (The Australian catholic university) to study teaching or nursing

What are your long term life ambitions and aspirations?

Hopefully after I have finished my teaching or nursing course, I want to travel overseas to help people in 3rd world countries.

In one sentence what would you like to say to your fellow students about your Pride in your College, yourself and those around you?

St Peter’s is such friendly and welcoming community and a community that’s ready to learn, embrace it and make the most of it.

 


Arizona Durbin, Social Justice Captain, Clyde North Campus

What are your goals for 2018?

For yourself in your role?

My goal is to get more students involved in Social Justice within Clyde North Campus, I feel at the moment it is hard to get people involved and I want to raise more awareness to issues not just within the world, but within our school and the local community. I wish to have a team of students that are keen to help me this year and they can carry on the enthusiasm once I finish this year.

Personally?

I would like to find out who I am. I would love to take a giant step out of my comfort zone. This year I would like to spend more time with friends and family and keep those around me close to me. I also want to volunteer a bit more than I do because it’s a good feeling when you know you are doing good for others.

What would you like your legacy to be for St. Peter’s College?

I would like people to know that I was there for them and if anyone needed help or to talk about anything that they felt comfortable talking to me. I hope to leave a legacy of compassion and service towards others, I hope to inspire those to go out and do good in the community.

What are you immediate life ambitions and aspirations once you complete your studies at St. Peter’s College?

I either would like to be a Flight Attendant or to study Hotel and Resorts Management at William Angliss Institute. I also want to travel and be with friends and family.

What are your long term life ambitions and aspirations?

Travel, work in either Tourism or Hospitality/Hotel and Resorts Management areas and be successful, put 110% into everything I do, continue to strengthen my faith, get married and have a family of my own.

In one sentence what would you like to say to your fellow students about your Pride in your College?

St. Peter’s College is like a second home to me, we’re all one big family and I have so much pride in what we have become and how much we have all grown together. Never be afraid to speak out and do what is right, no matter what.


St. Peter’s College Social Justice Programs include Ozanam House in North Melbourne and volunteering at Vinnies Cranbourne, partnerships between our Students with local aged care facilities, such as Willow Wood Aged Care, all the while getting first hand experience in all that these organisations, and others like them, achieve every day.

Part of the St. Peter’s College Year 12 Program is an opportunity for students to participate in the end of year St. Peter’s College Solomon Island Immersion Program. The Program, which comprises three key activities being: Fundraising, Cultural Learning and  the Immersion Trip are designed to enable our students to develop a greater understanding of themselves, in relation to the world at large, with particular emphasis on those countries that are still developing and are perceived to have a lesser lifestyle than the one they are accustomed to.

As well as these activities the St. Peter’s College Student Body, as a whole, undertakes many fundraising activities throughout their year. Students and Staff have raised funds to support the annual Caritas Project Compassion Appeal, The Winter Blanket Appeal for St. Vincent de Paul, Harmony Day and several free dress or theme days to raise money for the Bishop of Sale, Charitable Fund.


In 2018 Caritas Fundraising Kicks Off again with Pancakes…..

A ‘Very Special Thank You’ to all St. Peter’s College students who work throughout the year to further develop our program of Social Justice, not only within our College Community but to the community at large.
