House Charities are central to Frederick Irwin – service at its best is a journey of discovery and awareness, learning about what a community really is and what it means to embrace diversity.

Barrett House decided that we always support ‘people’ as our chosen charity, so this year they would like to support a local community program that takes care of wildlife. Mandurah Just Joey Marsupial Care is a not for profit service that relies on public donations to pay for vet bills and feed for injured or abandoned marsupials.
Barrett House’s favourite fundraising activities:
- Waffle baskets and hash browns, and the flat bacon & egg waffles.
- Easter Raffle
- Making of stands and pouches – Geoff in Design and Technology and Ms Mel Brokate in Home Economics very kindly made 16 stands and pouches for the marsupials to sleep in.
- Animal Petting Station – As part of Founders’ Day activities we brought in the volunteers and selected animals from Mandurah Just Joey Marsupial Care to promote the charity. As part of this activity, some of the Barrett students and selected staff did make delicious and cute gingerbread kangaroo biscuits to sell.
