Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.

Our senior St Charles’ students form ‘Young Franciscans’ leadership groups each year to organise community outreach activities for Caritas and Catholic Mission, St Vincent de Paul (Mini Vinnies) and Indigenous Education programs at our sister school, St Mary’s Primary School in Bowraville.
