Covenant House

STA's annual Christmas Charity supporting homeless youth. Our "Sleep Out" on November 24th, 2014 raised $4000. Students and staff braved the wet and cold night to sleep outside to raise awareness of youth homelessness. Our December Spirit Day, students are asked to donate a minimum of $5/- to help us raise another $4000.  Donations can also be given online at this Link. Donations of $10/- and more will be issued with tax receipts.
Last year's Spirit Day collection for Covenant House amounted to $2350.00
