A JAM-packed Start to 2024 

A JAM-packed Start to 2024

The Justice And Mercy (JAM) group at SAC is a collective of students in Years 6-12 who, with guidance from a team of staff and old scholars, lead initiatives to raise awareness and funds for social and environmental causes throughout the year. The JAM group meets weekly, on Fridays at lunch time, to participate in leadership formation and learning about such issues, before planning and coordinating activities that engage the school and wider communities. JAM students also regularly volunteer for Mercy Matters initiatives (Years 7-9) and visit Sister Janet Mead’s Adelaide Day Centre for the Homeless, located nearby in Moore Street, on Wednesdays at lunch times. 

This year, we welcome to the JAM staff team Angelica Alfaro. Angie graduated from SAC in 2023 and will work closely with myself and Mia Konopka (Class of 2022) to guide JAM. 

Term 1 is always an exciting and challenging time of year for JAM students, with the group welcoming many new members while strengthening existing bonds, and learning about a range of important issues. 

Significant JAM dates for Term 1 include: 

The first JAM meeting for the year was held on Friday Week 2, where students met JAM leaders – a team of six Year 6 students and two Year 12 students, who will lead the group in 2024. 

Congratulations to our 2024 JAM Leaders:
