2018 Project Compassion Day

2018 Project Compassion Day 005

On Wednesday 28th of February Our Lady of Lourdes held our Project Compassion Fundraiser. It was a fantastic day where all of the students got involved to help support this great cause. It also taught us a lot about the struggles and challenges people in other countries have to face on a daily basis. We did water relays, where we had to transport water from one place to another in a bucket on our head. This activity helped us to understand the challenges people go through to get water in these poor countries. We also did an obstacle course that represented the physical challenges the people need to overcome each day to complete regular daily activities. Each student who wore mufti donated money to support the cause. All of the students and families were very generous and we raised $891. We all learnt how lucky we are to be in Australia and have access to clean water, food, education and infrastructure. These things are precious and we need to be grateful for everything we have.
