To Live Justly, provides students and staff with a social justice focus which not only involves fund raising for various causes, but also raises awareness of issues such as Domestic Violence, Harmony Day, and Environmental issues. The Buddies Day is an initiative organised by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Students volunteer their time on a Sunday to be ‘Big Buddies’ and share their time and energy with Saint Vincent de Paul ‘Little Buddies’. These days involve the College’s ‘Big Buddies’ keeping their ‘Little Buddies’ safe and involved in activities¬†which include treasure hunts, ball games, group games, craft activities, shared lunches and morning teas, bushwalking and horse riding.
