Beachathon


Each May, the College holds its annual Beachathon - the College's major fundraising event for the year. Students are asked to raise a minimum of $20 however many students raise much more. 

Students travel by bus to the Gold Coast, then walk approx.10 kilometres along some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. In a spirit of fellowship and sheer enjoyment, students enjoy a break from their routines.

Supervision is vital so teachers walk with the students, as well as being strategically placed along the route to assist at any time. At the end of the walk, a barbecue is waiting, 

Students then spend the remainder of the day participating in beach games and activities or simply spending time with their friends. They return via bus to the College in time to make their transport connections.

In 2019 the college is supporting the following charities:

Australian Marist Solidarity is the agency for the aid and development work of the Marist Province of Australia throughout Asia and the Pacific Islands. They work with the people in this region on projects that aim to develop, or support, locally sustained education opportunities for the young people in these regions.

Caritas supports long-term development programs in impoverished communities in Africa, Asia, Timor Leste, Latin America, Indigenous Australia and the Pacific — helping oppressed people to rediscover their dignity by taking greater control over their lives and overcoming poverty.

Catholic Mission is the Australian agency of the international Pontifical Mission Societies. Locally and globally, they answer the call to love God and love our neighbour, and work to establish the Reign of God through building communities of missionary disciples of Jesus who share their faith by serving people in need, acting for justice and creation, and adopting child-focused development programs.

The St Vincent de Paul Society is a lay Catholic organisation that aspires to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and by working to shape a more just and compassionate society.

Rosies is a community of people reaching out to those most abandoned, to be present with them, offering them experience of community and belonging. They provide a sense of community to those experiencing homelessness by running and staffing drop in centres and street vans.
