Destinations

Balgo House Charity

In 2016 Balgo House started a partnership with the Mercy Works organisation. Mercy Works support long term development projects, where the needs of people who are denied access to basic resources like education and health care are urgent, in Australia and the South-East Asia Pacific. In their House Week 2016, students of Balgo House committed themselves to fundraising for the Mercy Works, where all donations went to a preschool on Bathurst Island.

Ash Wednesday

Today as a school community we celebrate Ash Wednesday which is the first day of the season of Lent. Throughout the morning, blessed ashes were marked on the foreheads of our students and staff in the form of a cross. The smudge mark made by the ashes is a visible reminder of the commitment we enter into during Lent and of the forgiveness and strength which is the gift of Jesus to each of us.
