Catherine McAuley Westmead students came together last term to raise money
for the Parramatta Women’s Shelter and succeeded in raising $4000!

Led by students from Mercedes and Ryan Houses the school held a number of
fundraising events throughout the term including a Mother’s Day stall, a
pizza lunch and a very successful lip sync battle.

The Lip Sync Battle was a school favourite considering the restrictions
which had previously been in place in relation to singing and dancing.
Staff and students battled it out in front of a packed auditorium with the
student audience all donating a gold coin to watch the fun.

The school looks forward to donating these funds to the Parramatta Women’s
Shelter, a crisis accommodation and outreach support service for women and
children escaping domestic and family violence.
