JJAMM – Joseph, Julian and Mary MacKillop
Every year, around this time, I sit down to write an article to share with our Josephite community, informing you all of our JJAMM gathering. Every year I struggle for a new angle, because, quite honestly, every year is the same – inspirational, rewarding and such a valuable learning experience for our school leaders, their teachers and the facilitators. So, I thought this year, I would let the school leaders “write” the report you read.
I have taken excerpts from the student leaders’ evaluations. I believe they give insight into the JJAMM experience.
Being immersed in such a positive, passionate and gratitude-filled environment revealed to me that I want to create environments like that wherever I go.
The JJAMM experience for me strengthened the fire inside for social justice and reminded me that my most important goal in life is to stand up for others and make a difference
A special thank you must be extended to Sr Annie Bond and Sr Anne Pardy who went out of their way to facilitate the group to visit Mary MacKillop Chapel and Alma Cottage whilst diligently adhering to COVID restrictions. The students truly benefitted from the Mary MacKillop Place experience.
