For the fourth year running the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) is holding our CEF Annual Appeal Day. We invite all Primary and Secondary schools in the Sydney Archdiocese to show their support for the work of the Foundation and participate in the annual fundraiser. By being involved you will help to support families in need in your local community.


Please save the date in your school’s calendar for week commencing Monday, 17 September 2018 (Week 9, Term 3), on any day which is most suitable for your school. If this week is not suitable, please select your own date, preferably during the week prior or week after.

What’s involved?

Students are invited to participate in a mufti day and wear their favourite sports hero or favourite team’s jumper or colours (for e.g. football club jersey, ) for a gold coin donation. Money raised to be donated to the CEF Bursary Fund to support children and their families.

Participating schools will have their school name and funds raised included on the 2018 CEF Annual Appeal Day honorary participation list promoted on the CEF website.
