Recognising St Pius X High School

29 March 2022

Ms JODIE HARRISONĀ (Charlestown): Yet again, I am here to talk about people in my electorate who have incredible heart. The students at St Pius X High School in Adamstown have shown their support for the people of Ukraine by raising funds for Caritas, a Catholic humanitarian organisation committed to working alongside the world's most vulnerable people.

It is on the ground in Ukraine supporting families displaced by the conflict. A thousand St Pius X students came together in Ukraine's national colours of yellow and blue to form the country's national flag on 24 March.

Along with raising funds, the school took the opportunity to remind its community about the importance of caring for those less fortunate. The school's commitment to supporting its neighbours across the globe during the humanitarian crisis is inspiring to the rest of the community.

I absolutely applaud all the students, teachers and staff at St Pius X High School in Adamstown for the work they have done.
