Just Visiting Conclusion


We hope that this reflective practice guide has sparked some valuable and robust discussion and thought amongst you. This process is certainly ongoing and we hope that this will continue to be a rich resource that you can revisit.

We have tried to amplify the voice of one of our many partners- Sister Len, as well as provide access to the expertise of Kath who has worked in the field for many years.

We are constantly working to reflect and improve our own practise and we are humbled and inspired by all the efforts and dedication of Australian Catholic Schools to build a better, fairer world.

Thank you for joining us in the fight to end poverty, promote justice, and uphold dignity.

You can contact us at any time at education@caritas.org.au to learn more about how we can support you.

How Caritas Australia can support you

Caritas Australia do not host school students on immersion programs.

We aim to support Australian Catholic Schools in the global education programs through the provision of complimentary classroom resources.Click here to browse this range of curriculum linked resources.

We also run complimentary student leadership workshops and teacher professional development.
Contact us to find out more about arranging a professional development session on global student Immersions.

We also strive to amplify the voices of our partners in community in our films, publications and communications, so that you can hear from our brothers and sisters about the impact of  your fundraising and social justice efforts.


Education cannot be neutral. It is either positive or negative; either it enriches or it impoverishes; either it enables a person to grow or it lessens, even corrupts him. The mission of schools is to develop a sense of truth, of what is good and beautiful. And this occurs through a rich path made up of many ingredients. This is why there are so many subjects — because development is the results of different elements that act together and stimulate intelligence, knowledge, the emotions, the body, and so on.
