LifeLink Day 2017: Secondary school launch success
03 May 2017
The first LifeLink Day of 2017 was held on Tuesday last week at Aranmore Catholic College. A total of 204 guests attended, including students, teachers, principals and special guests from 24 secondary Catholic schools in Western Australia.
Established by the Archdiocese of Perth in 1994, LifeLink works to provide ongoing financial and promotional support of agencies established or assisted by the Church. LifeLink’s agencies deliver professional services and caring support to thousands of people in need throughout WA each year.
The morning began with addresses from The Most Rev Donald G Sproxton, Auxiliary Bishop of Perth, The Most Rev Timothy Costelloe SDB, Archbishop of Perth, and Dr Edward Simons, Director of Governance and Administrative Services, who represented Catholic Education Western Australia’s Executive Director Dr Tim McDonald. Following morning tea, the panel engaged with students through a question and answer session allowing them to get valued feedback and share ideas about maximising LifeLink within the community.
A highlight of the event was the announcement of Mercy College as the winners of the 2016 Sprit Award for secondary schools. We would like to congratulate students and staff from the College for their amazing spirit of support and their involvement in such an important educational and fundraising initiative.
The event was live streamed via the LifeLink website, and is now available to view here.
The Launch of LifeLink Day 2017 for primary schools within the Archdiocese of Perth will take place in June and will also be live streamed. See event details below.
