Staff Development Days

The Solidarity Program is also available for Staff Development Days. The program for the day can be tailored to include any key initiatives as directed by the school or Sydney Catholic Schools. 

Funds raised from the Solidarity Program and Staff Development Days will help to directly fund CatholicCare Sydney and its programs to support people who live and work with intellectual disabilities.
