Timor-Leste Fund and Awareness Raising

Since 2010, Ms Sharon Walsh, Year 10 Team Leader, has raised money, collected goods through the Woolworths Earn and Learn Program and raised awareness about Timor-Leste (East Timor). Ms Walsh has liaised with Br Michael Lynch SDB who is in charge of Salesian Missions in the Asia Pacific Region, so that the money and goods went where they were most needed.

In 2011, we were visited by Sr Carolina from the Venilale Community. After an information gathering trip in late 2013, Ave Maria College began a sister relationship with St Maria Mazzarello School in Venilale.

Since 2014, the College has undertaken various fundraisers for St Maria Mazzarello School. This includes the annual Mission Action Day and one other major annual fundraiser event.

The 2017 Timor Leste Trivia Night raised almost $5000 for St Maria Mazzarello School.
