St Joseph’s students 'Sock It To Poverty'
Jesus calls us at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School to be ‘Mission People’. That's why our students jumped at the opportunity to wear their crazy socks to school and donate a gold coin to Catholic Mission for our ‘Sock It To Poverty’ fundraiser.
A huge thank you to our St Joseph’s school community for your generosity and solidarity in working together to make a difference through compassionate action and loving service.
Our school community was able to raise over $600 to ‘Kick Goals for Kids in Need this Mission Month.’
"We worked together as a school community to raise money (gold coin donations) for poor people around the World especially in the focus country Malaysia. Our Mission is to think of others as well as ourselves!" one student said.
"It was also really fun using the Socktober recycled, hand-made soccer balls in PE. It made us appreciate how lucky we are. It’s important to show empathy and compassion for all our brothers and sisters around the world," another said.
"I really enjoyed seeing all the happy faces of the students and teachers as we wore crazy socks to ‘Sock It To Poverty’. Our money makes a difference to those who need it most" — St Joseph's student
"It was fun because you got to see everyone's crazy socks," Kindergarten said. "It important to help others because we are being like God and Jesus when we help others."
"We can’t wait to help other families again next year!"
