In 2018, Star of The Sea VCAL students aim to raise awareness and funds on behalf of the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project
Stars on a Mission is the product of our VCAL outreach program at Star of the Sea College. VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) is a hands-on option for students in Years 11 and 12. VCAL gives students practical work-related experience, as well as literacy and numeracy skills and the opportunity to build personal skills that are important for life and work. This year, in 2018, Stars on a mission is focused on raising funds and awareness for BASP. As a cohort, we have explored the problems and issues affecting Asylum seekers in our country and community. BASP works with, and for, people seeking asylum both in detention and in the community. We have completed an enterprise program launching a range of businesses and products. All proceeds from the sale of these products will go directly to BASP.
BASP is an organisation that focus on practical assistance for people who seeking Asylum in Victoria. It is a charity that raises awareness of the issues that Asylum Seekers are facing today in the detention centers overseas. BASP exists to try and help all the people from other countries who are coming by boat to Australia to Seek Asylum to start a new life but are being sent to the detention centers as the government is not allowing them in Australia.
