LHC joins Team Gabby for L’Arche Week - 02 May 2014

From 5-9 May, the College will celebrate L'Arche Week with a series of fundraising activities.

The organisation L'Arche  is dedicated to supporting people with disabilities and on assembly last week students met a young girl named Gabby, who will be the recipient of the College’s support this year.

Born with Dravet's Syndrome and a tendency to have seizures, Gabby lived a fairly normal life until the age of 3 and a half, when she developed a viral infection and had multiple, long-lasting seizures leading to an acquired brain injury.

She was left with little muscular control, was wheelchair bound and unable to feed herself.

Gabby's family is committed to helping her reach her potential, using conductive education, an holistic therapy designed to help her brain regenerate. The cost of this therapy is huge.

The College’s L'Arche student leaders will be conducting a raffle throughout the week and have received wonderful support from the local community, with many businesses donating prizes.

This week, Deputy Principal – Mission, Mr John Clarke encouraged all members of the College community to support the raffle and contribute towards in Gabby's ongoing recovery.

“I am in awe at the determination of our L'Arche leaders to support Gabby. They follow the best traditions of Lourdanians whose hearts reach outward to make a better world,” he said.
