Walk for Tiwi

Melbourne’s east-central region Catholic school communities have raised nearly $8,500 to help restore St Therese’s Church on Bathurst Island through a ‘Walk for Tiwi’ held across the schools during Terms 3 and 4.

The fundraising efforts were inspired by a principal professional development visit to the islands earlier in the year, including a meeting with Sisters Amelia Fatima and Anne Gardiner who shared experiences of working in the remote setting, underlining the important role of St Therese’s Church in the local community.

The principals shared their experience with their school communities and undertook the action to raise funds for the restoration of St Therese’s Church.

Congratulations to all involved in this project.
