The House Leaders of Caritas, Coolock and Veritas launched the McAuley's Got Talent competition at the school assembly last week.

At the school assembly last week the student leaders of Caritas, Coolock and Veritas launched the McAuley’s Got Talent competition for 2023!

The leaders acknowledged that given all the dancing and singing at the Mercy Day disco recently that it is obvious that McAuley students have lots of talent!

The McAuley’s Got Talent competition is an annual fundraising event held at the school to raise money for the Jesuit Refugee Centre in Parramatta.

This centre is part of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), an international Catholic organisation who has as their mission to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons.

Their services include providing affordable housing for people seeking asylum, English classes, home visits, legal advice, a food bank and social support activities to name a few.

Zoe Grant, Community and Schools Engagement Coordinator, JRS Australia thanked the school for fundraising for JRS again and said that the support means a lot and makes a big difference.

The heats for the competition will begin in Week 2 next term and students can register now via Compass.

"We hope to see many students eager to perform and showcase their talents including singing, dancing, acting, slam poetry and many more”, the House Leaders told the school assembly.
