Catholic Social Teachings are practiced and endeavoured to be made explicit at Our Lady Help of Christians Primary School community, Warrnambool East. The See, Judge, Act method developed by Belgian Cardinal Joseph Cardijn, encourages us to explore our understandings and beliefs of our Catholic Social Teachings as we respond to various social issues presented to us.
Our Catholic teachings are the basis of what we see, judge and act upon making our social action and justice program reflective, experienced and awareness raising.
