Good Counsel College operates a number of social justice initiatives throughout the year. Mission and Outreach plays an important role in our Catholic Identity and spans not only the local community but the global community as well.
Regular social justice initiatives include the Caritas Lenten Appeal, St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal and St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal. As circumstances dictate and opportunities arise, the College supports appeals including the Vinnies Winter Sleepout, bushfire appeals, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Relay for Life, Socktober, Do it in a Dress, drought stricken farmers, various environmental initiatives, and recycling campaigns.
Students of the St Vincent de Paul chapter, seek opportunities to educate others and to make the world a better place. On a bi-annual basis students have attended Ignite in Brisbane and thrived in the opportunity of spending time with other like-minded Christian youth.
Year 11 and 12 Catholic Faith in Action students put their studies into action by voluntarily working for the betterment of the local community through and array of small projects including spending time at local nursing homes and working in community gardens. They also spending time with other church communities fostering respect for all religions.
