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.
Villa Maria Catholic Primary School Hunters Hill continues to centre all social justice and mission programs on the Marist charism and Catholic social teaching. There are four mission and outreach initiatives that are led by the house leaders and the Mini Vinnies group. The school generously raises money and donates goods to support a number of Catholic charities.
