Students raise funds for Ukraine humanitarian effort

10 May 2022

Ms JODIE HARRISON (Charlestown)—Students at St Pius X School in Adamstown have shown their support to the people of Ukraine by raising funds for Caritas.

Caritas, a Catholic humanitarian organisation committed to working alongside the world's most vulnerable people, is on the ground in Ukraine supporting families displaced by the conflict.

1000 St Pius X students came together in Ukraine's national colours of yellow and blue to form the country's national flag on March 24. 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 their humanitarian crisis is inspiring to the rest of the community. We can all learn how to make our world better through attention to actions like this taken by St Pius X students.
