A group of students and staff members at St Bernards College in Essendon recently spent 24 hours in a cage in the school grounds to raise awareness in the College community of the plight of those in our world who experience poverty and marginalisation.

The exercise particularly focussed on members of the Br Beausang School Community in Kenya, with whom the College has formed a partnership, and the plight of homeless young people in Melbourne.

Although well clothed to face the rigors of winter, the group nevertheless spent the night in the open during which time they took minimal nourishment which meant that they emerged tired and hungry at the end of their 24 hour period spent in the cage.

The exercise was judged to be a great success in raising awareness in the school community around their chosen issues.
