Last week, our Year 11 VCAL students presented their Tote Bags to Sr Brigid Arthur AO. The students have been working on this project for a number of months. They designed and made their bag and filled it with ingredients and instructions to make a ‘family favourite’ recipe – one that was connected to the student’s family, culture and community. Each tote bag will be given to a family that the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) supports. This project is a wonderful example of our College value of Living with Compassion, with students taking the time to learn about the treatment of Asylum Seekers in Australia and setting about doing something to show that they are seen, respected and cared for. It is also a wonderful example of a learning task, created by Ruth Myers and the VCAL team, that reflects the last point in our College Mission: ‘We will engage and dialogue with others, advocate for the vulnerable and act with a spirit of justice for all’.
