Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.
St Martha’s Catholic Primary School Strathfield engages closely with the wider community and students are always encouraged to serve those in need.
Money is raised throughout the year for diverse needs. We have a close relationship with St Vincent De Paul and Caritas. Our enthusiastic Mini Vinnies group meets weekly to work on projects that build awareness of our local and global responsibilities and fundraise for various initiatives. It also assists them to build their leadership skills.
