The annual SAC Can Drive will be held this term on Friday 1 April (Week 9). This is a major fundraising event with all cans donated going to the Adelaide Day Centre, to support the current 6000 people experiencing homelessness in South Australia.

We invite each student and their family to donate a minimum of two cans to help exceed the number of cans we collected last year, which was 12,430 cans in total, our largest total amount ever.

Students are asked to bring in cans of food to their home class as early as this week and classes will keep a tally of the number of cans that have been donated.  The class with the highest number of cans will be shared via SEQTA each week, leading up to the Can Drive, with the overall class winner announced and presented with an award. 

The Adelaide Day Centre appreciates all of our can donations, in particular cans of baked beans, spaghetti, beans, pasta, tuna, salmon, soup, tomatoes, corn, asparagus etc. are very much appreciated by centre staff in their work to support the homeless in our community. 

The Can Drive will begin at 12.15pm with all students from Reception to Year 12 meeting in their designated outdoor area, as part of our Covid approach. Students will then have 20 minutes to build their sculpture based on this year’s book week theme “Dreaming with Eyes Open.”   

Students will wear their usual summer uniform or PE uniform, if they have PE on this day and will be dismissed at the normal time of 3:15pm for Primary and 3.20pm for Secondary students. The OSHC service will run as normal from 3.15pm.

Year 7 to Year 11 Students Representative Council (SRC)

Nurturing Student Leadership Across our school

At St Aloysius, we have a proud tradition of working to nurture student leadership across our school in a wide range of areas. One of those includes our Student Representative Council (SRC), which is a formal group of students, elected by their peers to represent them and their points of view.

As an SRC, students facilitate leadership and decision making by bringing important issues to the notice of the school community, as well as organising whole school events and taking on additional responsibilities.

We congratulate our 2022 SRC members, a strong group of passionate and energetic young leaders. Students were presented with their badges in their Home Classes, and we look forward to seeing all of our leaders take on their new role in the Secondary school.

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate every student who nominated themselves on their willingness to become involved in the leadership of our school community. We look forward to many of the nominees taking up other informal leadership opportunities this year including lunch time clubs, JAM, tour guides and other activities.

Congratulations to the following students:
