‘Bright Night Project’ Fundraiser

‘Bright Night Project’ Fundraiser 


Tuesday 18 June was the anniversary of Laudato Si – the signing of the Pope’s pledge for urgent action to save the environment. To celebrate the occasion the Year 12 Creation and the Environment Class organised our first annual event, which raised funds for the ‘Bright Night Project’ in East Timor.


The day started with an excel lesson where participating students were shown a presentation of Laudato Si. This was followed by the Tree of Life activity, where students shared what they were grateful for about our common home and formed our trees on the chapel windows. Students were then given the opportunity to make their own personal pledge and sign the petition to commit to living out the vision of the encyclical and our Catholic faith through prayer, concrete action and advocacy.


The lesson was followed by a lunchtime celebration out the front of the Whyte building. This included student musicians, an ethically sourced egg and bacon BBQ, stalls selling bees wax wraps, environmental badges, slices and a palm oil free chocolate toss competition. Another opportunity to the sign the pledge and banner was also provided. The day was a great success and students were able to draw attention to many environmental issues they are passionate about. 


All money raised is going to our class fundraiser called ‘Bright Night Project’. This is an initiative to fund solar lights to students living in East Timor. Lights are environmentally sustainable and help improve safety, health and education outcomes for the students.
