Welcome to St Michael's Primary School Kaleen
Week 8 Term 2
SPONSOR THE PRINCIPAL - AGAIN! St Vinnies CEO Sleepout and Winter Appeal!
This year Mrs Walsh will again participate in the St Vinnies CEO Sleepout and Winter Appeal! She returns just in time to sleepout for this very worthwhile cause.
Each night there are over 1,000 homeless people in the Canberra region! Over half of the homeless people in Canberra are women, and 45% are under the age of 25. This appeal does run hot on the heels of the Walkathon, but this time our focus is on following Jesus’ example to ‘Love our neighbour as ourselves’. We are again requesting your support for the Canberra St Vincent de Paul Society by sponsoring Mrs Walsh in the CEO sleepout event to be held in Week 8 on Thursday 20th June. Any money raised from sponsorship goes directly to St Vinnies to support programs such as the Night patrol and other homeless services, designed to provide shelter for these people and welcome them back to the community.
Donate on line through this link https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/donate/online-donation/ or there will also be a collection bucket in the front office.
We are also collecting winter woollies for the street community. We need old (or new) winter jackets, scarves, socks, beanies and gloves for adults and children. Please leave items of clothing at the Front Office by the end of term, Friday, 5th July 2013. Thank you to Miss Leah McInerney for again stimulating the St Michael’s community into action.
