Samaritan Fundraising

As part of their celebrations in Catholic Education Week each year, Tasmanian Catholic schools and colleges participate in fundraising activities to raise money for Samaritan Projects, the Archbishop’s charitable foundation supporting Tasmanians in times of need.  

In 2014, schools and colleges held dress up and free dress days, and crazy hair days.  Some schools and colleges took the opportunity to come together with a soup and roll day, a canteen meal deal day, and eating foods common in third world countries.

Some students (and staff!) also got into the spirit by holding discos.  Tasmanian Catholic Education Office staff contributed by filling a map of Tasmania with gold coins.

All money raised for the Samaritan Projects will be presented to Archbishop Julian Porteous by the TCEO. As well as fundraising for the Samaritan Projects, schools and colleges also dug deep to raise money and provide goods for St Vincent de Paul and the Cancer Council.  

Thank you to all the students, families and staff who gave so generously. To find out more about the Samaritan Projects and how you can donate to help support others in our community, visit the Archdiocese of Hobart website.
