Homestay Volunteers – Jesus Good Shepherd School, Philippines

We will be welcoming seven students from Jesus Good Shepherd School in the Philippines from 1- 15 September for a short-term cultural experience. For this program we will be looking for families to volunteer homestay accommodation for these students. The visiting students will shadow their host brother or sister at Loyola for the duration of the stay and host families may arrange outings for outside of school hours. These visits provide a rewarding learning experience for both guests and families, offering opportunities to learn about and experience culture, language and friendship.

Interested families should see the flyer below and contact Monica Agius for more information on 9433 0228 or email community@loyola.vic.edu.au

Maytime Fair

Xavier House and the Loyola Parents and Friends Association (LPFA) will once again be supporting the Maytime Fair at Xavier College by running a hot jam donut stand. The Fair will also include entertainment for parents and children with a huge array of food, music, rides, arts, crafts, games, a wine auction, sport, face painting, showbags and more. This year’s Maytime Fair will be held on TOMORROW 4 May from 9:00am – 5:00pm.

Proceeds from this annual event support Jesuit Missions and every year, Loyola College happily participates in this wonderful day. We look forward to seeing many Loyola families at the Fair – which always proves a fun day for all. Thank you to the parents and students who have volunteered to run the stall.
