Socktober is a Catholic Mission initiative which St Joseph’s fundraise and engages in advocacy for Catholic Mission during World Mission Month in October. The ‘Sock it to Something’ concept is an Australian expression that means to fight, punch or strike out at. For example, each year Socktober will ‘sock it’ to social issues such as poverty, child labour, child trafficking and homelessness. We want you to help us fight, punch or strike out at social issues, but we also need your practical support. This year we will be holding a Crazy Sock Day on Friday 1 November and we encourage all students to wear crazy socks. Students are asked to donate a gold coin to participate. Our day will conclude with a Mission Mosh Disco (2-3pm) and all families are welcome to join us in the Sports Centre. A Sausage Sizzle will also be available during this time and students can purchase a sausage on bread for $2. All proceeds from the day will go towards the Catholic Missions.
