During the last week of term, students and staff from Nagle College, Blacktown collected 150 blankets and donated $360 to the St Vincent de Paul Society’s Winter Appeal.
The Winter Appeal supports communities by providing food, clothing and much more to those living in poverty and disadvantage, a cause that Nagle College supports every year as part of their commitment to serving their local community of Blacktown.
In addition to collecting blankets, the Nagle College ‘Bring it On’ Dance Troupe also contributed to the Winter Appeal with a donation of $360 raised through a bake stall. Students involved in the ‘Bring it On’ Dance Competition need to participate in community service to meet the requirements of the competition, and this year chose to focus their efforts on the St Vincent de Paul Society’s Winter Appeal.
On Thursday 28 June, St Vincent de Paul Youth and Young Adult Coordinator, Penelope Foster, visited Nagle and was presented with the blankets and cheque by Year 12 students Christine Tawil, Samantha Frangie, Jessica Rayner and Stephanie Endycott.
Nagle’s Religious Education coordinator, Kim Brady, said she was proud of the student response to the 2012 appeal.
‘Nagle has an excellent relationship with the local St Vincent de Paul Conferences,’ said Kim. ‘Our girls are very passionate about serving the local community of Blacktown and respond best to initiatives that cater for needs they see in their own community.’
