If you think deeply upon your most cherished memories, you’ll notice that in almost none of them you are alone. Starting with this foundation, we can begin to see the power that others have on our lives. Christmas, and indeed the entire holiday season, is an especially potent time for memories to born and resurrected in our minds of times spent with family and friends. Through our interactions with others we become closer to Jesus Christ, the true hallmark of Christmas.

The example offered by Jesus is one that calls each of us to recognise the dignity of those around us. Which is why- the St. Vincent de Paul group have generously worked to support this years’ Christmas Appeal. Each morning a small group of boys has been visiting each homeroom to collect gifts of toys and non-perishable food (e.g. cans) for those less fortunate. Those in our local area who struggle particularly hard during the Christmas.

What has been warming to see is how many boys within the College have generously accepted this invitation and brought in gifts. Please, if you can, the college will continue to collect donations until the last day on December the 7th.

With great appreciation,

Art Nichols and Nathaniel Winfield
