Thank you to our parents for your ongoing support for Waterford, especially in these challenging times.

Please ensure that your son completes or continues to work towards completion of Waterford,  (minimum of 15 hours) which is due at the end of Term 3.

The virtual Homeless Sleepout was successful on Sunday evening, with many boys completing the Sleepout and raising funds for Coast Shelter.

A further reminder of some possibilities to complete the Waterford program:

  • Virtual Homeless Sleepout:  Can be completed during the holidays, if your son missed the opportunity on Sunday evening.
  • Fill-A-Bag:  See below for more details
  • Kenya Walk, Run, Cycle, Swim, Surf, Skate:  To raise money for the Christian Brothers Mission in Kenya, which focuses on education and pastoral care for young people, their families and communities. Students receive 1 Waterford hour for every $5 they raise, while completing these activities.
  • At Home: Jobs assisting siblings ( eg babysitting, reading, teaching skills in music, sports etc) or assisting neighbours and elderly family members (eg even by regularly communicating with them).
  • Sports/Activities Clubs:  With the recommencement of these facilities, duties include coaching, and assisting younger teams, as well as set-up of venues and canteen duties.
  • Parish/Church Participation: Altar serving, working B’s, music ministry, reading at Mass etc.
