Service and Mission

To live the Goals of Sacred Heart Education, Mission and Service are key elements of College life and all students are encouraged to participate in this area. Each year, the Service Convenor, working closely with her relevant committees and with College staff, establishes a varied program of social justice and community activities. These include Clean Up Australia Day, packing birthing kits for the Zonta women's group, Earth Hour, the Inter-College 'Do It In The Dark' Competition, attending the local Dawn Service for ANZAC Day, Live Below the Line, 40 Hour Famine, Do It In A Dress, Daffodil Day and the coordination of various fundraisers for a number of charities, including Drought Angels, St Vincent De Paul and RSPCA.  In addition, the College has its own chapel and mass is celebrated by Fr. Domenico (UQ Catholic Chaplain) on a fortnightly basis. All residents are welcome to attend.
