The following is a message from long time staff member Peter Costello. Peter coordinates our charitable programmes within the College and it is great to see that the modern student is maintaining the spirit of giving.
During the six weeks of Lent we are running our annual Caritas Appeal. This is run under the auspices of the Catholic Bishops of NZ. The students are responding extremely well this year. They are asked to "give little lots" - each Vertical Form time the Caritas box is handed around and students make their donations. As well as hundreds of dollars given in this way there have also been some very large donations made, some seniors giving over $100 each. After just one week of Lent the school total has passed $900 - a reflection of the true Lasallian spirit that FDMC encourages.
