Raize the Roof Raize the Roof is a not for proft charity developed by brother and sister team, Lincoln Dal Cortiva (Class of 2000) and his sister, Danielle. Raize the Roof raises money to help kids who are a little less lucky than most. Their aim is to use donations, fundraising and help from the community to secure a block of land and build a house which, once completed, is auctioned and the profts donated to various charities that help children all over the world. Raize the Roof can be contacted via their website http://www.raizetheroof.org.au or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Two in the Chest Keep an eye out for John-Paul Jory (Class of 2003), Business Informatics (UC) student by day, actor by night. A second year student at the University of Canberra, John- Paul is supplementing his income as well as having a load of fun with his role in the Australian Families of Crime television series. John-Paul will be taking ‘two in the chest’ in the fnal episode this season. Jessica Draper-Jones Development Offce On Our Own Doorstep In October 2009, Tony O’Toole (Class of ’76), travelled to Papua New Guinea for two weeks to undertake volunteer work in some local villages and towns. Tony and his group offered motivational talks and supplied clothing, blankets, school books and toys for village families in Port Moresby, in the highlands and on the coast. Another trip is planned for September 2010. Thus, Tony is actively collecting various items for distribution to isolated highland villages including clothing, frst aid equipment, footballs, ARL gear, hunting equipment and more educational equipment. Tony noted that the “trips have been a real eye opener on how much help is needed by people right on our own doorstep”. 13 In early May this year, two Old Boys came into the College with the comment, “Wow, things have changed!” One young man noted that he had seen a television advertisement for St Edmund’s College that morning whilst breakfasting, then went to the cinema with a mate and saw another advertisement at the beginning of the movie and then, whilst driving to the College from Woden, heard an announcement on the car radio. “Its good to see Eddie’s raising its profle in the community. But it was a bit odd ‘cause I was driving there for the frst time in a couple of years.” As the community grows more media savvy, it’s important to promote awareness of the College via a variety of media outlets. Thus, the College is advertising on the television, the radio, Face book, broadcast SMS and in the cinema. Roadside banners and signs also work to keep St Edmund’s College in the forefront of people’s minds along with traditional newspaper advertisements, posters and the College’s website. While some of these advertisements promote events at the College such as our recent Open Day or College performances, the television, cinema and radio advertising offers the opportunity to more effectively highlight the values of the College such as “Opportunity”, “Success” and “Community”. The current students love to see their school advertised on TV and in the cinema, as these ads reinforce and support their pride in “Being an Eddie’s Boy”. Jessica Draper-Jones Development Offce ST EDMUND’S COLLEGE OPENS ITS DOORS TO A “MEDIA SAVVY” COMMUNITY St Edmund’s College would like to invite expressions of interest in advertising in the Pelican.
