CATHOLIC EDUCATION FEE SAVINGS ACCOUNT *TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY SAVING LIVES: Students and staff at St Francis de Sales College put any fears of needles aside in a bid to save lives and help their community. The College's Justice and Ministry Team organised for the Australian Red Cross Blood Service's mobile donor centre to visit the College in June. Year 11 and 12 students and staff filled around 50 donation slots. College Captain Hilary Byrth is part of the Justice and Ministry Team, which spent about a year organising the donor centre to visit the College. Hilary also raised awareness of the impor tance of giving blood by speaking at College assemblies and visiting classrooms. "They realised they can save three lives by giving blood and I think that reality surprised a lot of students," she said. SPEAKING OUT: Cardijn College year 8 student Sophie Quinn (pictured above left) has won herself a place in the junior category of the national Rostrum Voice of Youth Grand Final after winning the State final held at Parliament House in June. Sophie spoke ardently about the topic 'United We Stand', dealing with the reconciliation of indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, and how as Australians, it is up to us to make a difference.
