The Vinnies Winter Sleep Out highlighted our co-responsibility in understanding and recognising the poor and vulnerable in society. Students and staff participated in sleeping rough to experience what it is like to be homeless. There were educational experiences to raise awareness, reflect and take informed action. The project connected our College Values of Courage, Compassion, and Commitment to real-life situations. Participants were engaged in the meaning of actively living the Catholic Social Teachings. A panel of speakers from a variety of agencies exposed participants to the harsh reality of homelessness and inspired them to understand what living the Gospel looked like.
