A small group of St Pius X College staff, students and parents who subsequently hiked the Kokoda Track, fundraised then conducted a visit and Immersion at Callan Services Special Education Centre, Gerehu in both 2014 and 2016 while staying with Br Phil Grundy, Old Boy of St Pius X College, at the Brothers Erima House. Subsequently St Pius X College hosted visits from Br Kevin Ryan, Br Phil Grundy and Mr Michael Lulu.


The partnerships developed between Callan Services and St Pius X College over recent years of Social Justice fundraising and awareness raising initiatives was consolidated by the Immersion Ambassadors, Years 9 and 10 boys from St Pius X College, who subsequently communicated to the SPX College community the nature of the work of the Christian Brothers, Callan Services, EREBB and ERF and the situation and lines of our closest international neighbours and the services provided for the education of those living with, and learning to overcome, disability in PNG.
