Social Justice

At Killester we follow the Gospel values of Jesus as well as the Kildare Education Ministries Social Justice Charter  : Living Peace, Living Justice Principles.

We have several social justice groups including the Justice and Democracy Group and the St Vincent De Paul Group. We have also begun a number of service aspects in Year 12 school based RE.

Various groups are involved in raising awareness and funds:
