Southern Hills students commended for their support at Christmas

The College recently received a congratulatory letter from the Armadale District of the Department of Communities, thanking the College for its help in aiding the fundraising drive and providing gift cards for the Christmas 2022 season.

The Department of Communities supports those in our community who experience:

  • homelessness,
  • mental health challenges,
  • disabilities,
  • early-term pregnancies,
  • Centrelink issues, and
  • Unemployment issues

Thanks to the efforts of a number of staff and students at the College, 49 gifts were presented to these young people in need!

Special thanks to Jacob Sciarrone (Year 10) for his contribution to this work. A number of the young recipients acknowledged their heartfelt thanks and gratitude, with some mentioning that this gift was their ‘first or only Christmas present they had received.’

Please convey a HUGE THANK YOU to Jacob Sciarrone, his mother Lisa, staff and students for their acts of kindness, providing hope and love to the 49 young people who received their gifts.

One of our SPIRIT values at the College is ‘Relational’, and we believe that this sort of outpouring is all part of the Southern Hills character-building process.

Well done, team!
