Making a Difference (MAD) Day 2021
On Friday 14 May, our students and staff celebrated Make a Difference Day (MAD) Day, a significant day in the life of La Salle College. It is the day we celebrate our founder; St John Baptist de La Salle whose Feast Day is the 15 May. The aim of the day is to think about the least, last and lost – and through our actions focus on ‘service to others’ as well as raising funds to support those in our community that need a helping hand. Through our service to others and fundraising through stalls and activities, we raised $17,187 to support less fortunate members in our local community through the Archbishop’s Life Link appeal and our ‘twin school’ in Pakistan, Sant Singh Wala. This Lasallian school needs basics that we take for granted such as a water tank for clean water and a sanitary toilet block to reduce illness in young children. The highlight of our MAD Day was our students and staff coming together to work as one to improve the lives of others with such a positive spirit.
