Socktober for Mission Month


October is World Mission Month and SJV will participate in Socktober on Wednesday 27 October.

This Socktober, Mission Australia is raising money for the Good Shepherd Sisters who run a kindergarten in Bangkok, Thailand. The Sisters support families by providing an education in a safe place, food and the essentials to vulnerable children so that parents may find employment.

We are asking children at SJV to wear crazy socks and donate a gold coin to “fill their classroom sock “for this great cause.

We are encouraging students to learn what life is like for children from Thailand, specifically those from slum areas in Bangkok, the bustling capital. Children will create a soccer ball made from recycled materials and play soccer with their buddy class.

To start the day teachers will have an exciting shoot out Teachers Vs Students!
