CONTINUING THE WORK OF THE SISTERS OF MERCY
The College has built a strong relationship with the community in Maliana, having first visited the remote area in 2014.
Advocating for change and empowerment
The fundamental reason for our ongoing support in Timor-Leste is to continue the work of the Sisters of Mercy by affording the opportunity of a quality education to all young women at the Colegio Infante de Sagre School in Maliana.
As well as an annual immersion visiting Timor-Leste and the Maliana community, the students fundraise and advocate for change and empowerment for the young women at Colegio Infante de Sagre. Our Food for Thought fundraising program is heavily supported by students and staff and provides funds for the nutrition and education of young women in Timor-Leste.
DEVELOPING CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING
Global Citizenship Immersion
The College participates in visits to Cambodia to develop cultural understanding.
peace-making and culture
The seven-day immersion includes cross-cultural experiences, historical adventures, volunteer work and meeting with Nobel Prize winners.
It offers Year 9 students the unique opportunity to discover the culture of Cambodia, build and enhance relationships, extend themselves beyond their comfort zone, develop their independence and put their Mercy values into action.
A TRUE CROSS-CULTURAL EXPERIENCE
Central Desert Program
Each year a group of Monte students and staff visit the community at Mutitjulu, home to the Anangu people.
