October is Mission Month at Joey's

In Australia, October marks World Mission Month. It is a celebration of the global work of missionaries, who reach out and support children and communities in need around the world. This year students will learn what life is like for children from Thailand where the Good Shepherd Sisters have been supporting communities in need for over 55 years. Funds raised this year will go towards supporting kindergarten children and their mothers in an area of Bangkok, where many simply cannot afford to send their children to school.

Students at St Joey's are encouraged to participate in Socktober this October to learn about how they can be missionary in their actions and raise some money so that children can have the same opportunities they are afforded here in Australia.‚Äč
