On Friday, SMCM celebrated its first Caritas Friday to participate in the Lenten Season and support the work of Project Compassion. Many of the students wore something to acknowledge community helpers and leaders. We also learnt about Shirley, from the Phillipines who has been supported by Caritas Australia. We learnt Shirley makes slippers from natural materials such as bananna leaves to support her family. We made our on own slippers using items from natural environment.
