Outreach First Timers - 24 June 2015

Earlier this term, four Year 10 students, Olivia Arnold, Sophie McCluskey, Emma Andrew and Georgia Kahlert (pictured), had their first taste of Outreach visiting Ozcare, a homeless shelter for men in South Brisbane. Immediately the girls were put into action preparing meals and serving dinner to the homeless.


Like most students who do Outreach, the girls loved it and asked, “When can we do this again?”  The College has 100 students and many staff who volunteer their time and give back to the community.


The Outreach experiences at Lourdes Hill have had such an impact on past students that many are dotted around the countryside still giving up their time to help others, including many who volunteer for Rosies, an organisation determined to tackle the scourge of the homeless.


On Friday 7 August, Outreach Captains, Kate Johnson and Cadence O’Reilly, have organised an afternoon tea to raise money for Rosies.  Guest speaker is Sarah Kedda, a past pupil who started “Sarah’s”, an Outreach program that continues to be offered at Lourdes Hill.


Parents and families are invited to come and spend 90 minutes enjoying a gourmet selection of treats with their daughters and find out about the great work they do in Outreach. We will also be drawing our wonderful Rosies raffle at the event, with some great prizes on offer. 


Tickets are $15 and can be paid through the online payment portal (Select “School Activities” then “Outreach Afternoon Tea Ticket”) or cash/cheque deposited in the fees box at student reception. All proceeds will go to Roasies.  Be early as there are only 100 seats available.
