Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.
St Clare’s College Waverley supports students in becoming more informed about the world and their role in its future. These matters are important to all young people and we promote discussion about global issues in a supervised school setting. Social justice gives us the chance to take action and empower young people to be a part of the solution. There is no better way for students to express the principles of Catholic social teaching than to stand together with their peers and teachers at school in support of those most in need. Throughout the year, we hold many fundraising events to support those in need both in our local community and as part of our global citizenship.
