Aquinas boys clean up

AQUINAS College has become renowned for its Community Service Programs. The programs have won the Volunteer Centre of WA’s Western Australian Difference Awards, and the Red Cross has awarded Aquinas with a national award for community service.

One initiative is the Kindred Family Program at Bandyup, Wooraloo and Riverbank Prisons, where students help set up and operate activities for young children during school holiday visits.

The Adult Migrant Education program for years 11 and 12 involves students tutoring conversational English classes for new migrants and refugees.

Years 10 through to 12 regularly volunteer for the Red Cross Soup Patrol, assisting drivers to feed homeless people in Fremantle and Perth.

All years take part in Red Cross and Salvation Army Door Knocks and Clean Up Australia Day.

Students regularly write letters on behalf of Amnesty International to countries where prisoners of conscience are being held.

CSP coordinator and national chairman of the Australian Red Cross Youth Movement said many of us do not see the positive side of youth.

“Young people are indeed playing a very important part in making a real difference to the lives of the most vulnerable in the community,” he said.
