Project Compassion 2022 Teacher Orientation Sessions

Join us via Zoom to learn about our Caritas Q&A sessions for your students and our new Project Compassion resources for 2022. 

These sessions are open to primary and secondary teachers and would be particularly relevant for RECs/APREs, Religious Education teachers and social justice/mission leaders. 

Join a Caritas Conversation

During Project Compassion, Caritas Australia is offering the chance to interact online with our staff and partners in Australia and overseas. Register your class for a 30 min Caritas Q&A session on Zoom where your students can engage directly with Caritas Australia’s program staff, partners and program participants. 

Help prepare your students for our Caritas Q&As by: 

After Project Compassion, at the beginning of Term 2, Caritas Australia will host more sessions where schools can share how their awareness raising and fundraising activities went through Term 1. This is a great opportunity to share your success, learn from other schools and continue to connect through social justice. 

Post-Project Compassion Sessions

Join us via Zoom to share your schools’ Project Compassion awareness raising and fundraising initiatives.  These 30-minute online sessions will enable participants to share their Lenten efforts with other students from across Australia.  

Each school is asked to prepare a short slide presentation (max. 4 slides) highlighting how your community has responded to this year’s appeal. Each school will be able to share their screen to show other participants their initiatives. You do not need to have attended the Caritas Q&As to be part of these sessions.
