Advent Reflections & Fundraising
As we enter Advent, we have produced an online Advent Calendar with daily reflections to help you join us as we journey through Advent. Our Advent Fundraising Campaign this year is for the Jesuit Refugee Service, with boys (and staff) taking on sponsored 125 themed challenges to raise money.

In our 125th Year as a Jesuit school we will be trying to go the extra mile with our Advent fundraising this year for the Jesuit Refugee Service. We are encouraging students to take up 125 themed sponsored challenges.
