Timor Leste Immersion

Monte students and teachers visit Timor Leste on the inaugural Service and Cultural Immersion program to this country. The students and staff provide support and assistance during their visit to the Sisters of Mercy, who are working with the Timorese people providing early childhood learning centres and programs for education and health.

This Immersion program is for Year 11 and 12 Monte students.

Imagine A World Where No One is Hungry

The Monte community continues to endeavour to respond to the hunger of our time in ways that are creative, compassionate, respectful, life-giving and life-changing.

On 13 November 2014 Monte launched the Timor Leste "Food for Thought" Project at a cultural evening. The evening raised funds to meet the nutritional and literacy needs of 450 young students in the Collegio in Maliana, Timor Leste, with whom Monte has already established strong connections.

In Mercy, we are called to be builders of community.
