St Paul’s students take their socks off for solidarity

Today St Paul’s High School, Booragul, held its annual ‘Crazy Sock Day’ to raise money for Catholic Mission’s ‘Sock it to Poverty’ campaign.

The purpose of the day is to live out the value of social justice that is part of our Catholic identity by helping people in need.

Students wore their craziest or most colourful socks and made donations to Catholic Mission.  The community gathered for a liturgy and then took off shoes and socks to show solidarity with those children who go barefoot to school every day.

This year a student group organised a futsal game with a trophy named ‘The Golden Sock’. Joshua Ford from Year 10 created an impressive trophy which is sure to become a highly contested prize each year.

Fundraising food stalls were also organised by tutor groups and the proceeds will help Catholic Mission continue their vital support for much needed education programs.
