Saint Mary MacKillop visits St Ollie's

Students at St Oliver Plunkett School, Cannon Hill, were surprised to see Saint Mary of the Cross Mackillop strolling into their playground.

However, their surprised looks soon turned to smiles when they realised it was, in fact, their Principal, Mr Blinkhoff.

To add a little spice to this year’s school fundraising for Project Compassion, it was made an inter-house fundraising challenge, with the principal promising to dress-up for the day as the patron of the winning house, which this year was - Mackillop.

St Ollie's has always had strong support for the ideal of ‘Christian Justice’, and has always strongly supported Caritas Australia in its Project Compassion fundraising appeal.

This year was no exception with more than $5000 dollars raised!
