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!
