Grad 2015 - Philippine Encounter
Every other year STA sponsors a social justice encounter for grade 11 and 12 students. In March of 2015 students and staff traveled to the Philippines to experience the rich culture of the Philippines and to dialogue with the young people there. The group worked with the Salesian Fathers of Don Bosco at their numerous outreach programs for children and youth. These programs included a feeding center for malnourished infants and toddlers, a daycare center, elementary and high schools, communities for families displaced by typhoons and vocational training programs. The students raised over $20,000 to donate to these projects as well as bringing sporting equipment, back packs and books.
