A Compassionate Community

​Here at St Thomas’ we truly are a compassionate community, showing care and concern for our neighbours and sharing our love. Below are some of the recent ways we have been or will be wearing compassion and supporting our neighbours in need.

Brisbane Catholic Education are inviting schools to participate in a united fundraiser “Hearts Aflame” to assist St Vincent De Paul in their works to support victims of the Australian bushfire tragedy.

It is hoped that between now and the fast nearing end of the year that schools might undertake a small fundraiser across the school community “Hearts Aflame for Bushfire Survivors”. The collective goal is to raise, $35 000.00 for donation to St Vincent De Paul’s bushfire appeal.

St Thomas’ is getting behind this fundraiser and will be having a “Hearts Aflame” free dress day on Friday 29th November. Students are invited to wear red, orange, yellow or hearts in exchange for a gold coin donation. The gold coin donations will be collected on Friday morning on the hardcourt – put your money where the heart is!

#HereistheLove - Christmas Cards 4 a Farmer

​Our very caring Year One students took up an opportunity to support our struggling farmers and contributed to Rural Aid’s “Christmas Cards 4 a Farmer” appeal.

Rural Aid were calling on children all over Australia to show their love and kindness to make a lasting impression on our farmers who help feed us, clothe us and keep our country rolling. The Year One students each made a Christmas card with a personal message to a farmer. I want to acknowledge our Year One’s for taking the time to show love and be neighbour to our farmers.
