The spirit of St John Fisher College is the courage to seek
justice, the gift of peace and the grace to forgive. More than just words, this
philosophy is represented in the way the young women of the College are
encouraged to stand up, make their mark and let their light shine on issues
that are important to them and the wider community.
Many of our students independently advocate a range of causes
that are important to them, and these efforts are strongly encouraged and
supported by the College. The College’s Social Justice Club is very
active and central to this. Each year students support
a range of local and international projects, involving both fundraising and
action for local and international causes. These include support for the
disadvantaged and those who have suffered domestic violence, collections for St
Vinnie’s Winter and Christmas Appeals, and the well-patronised Maggie's Café
which together with fundraising for Mercy Works allows us to support worthy causes. Environmental awareness has also seen
the establishment of Containers for Change bins for bottles and cans.
