Lead by the Year 12 seniors, St Ursula’s College has launched a Yellow Hope Campaign to spread compassion, optimism and of course hope. This initiative aims to encourage a movement within the community to tie a yellow ribbon, bow or wreath in a visible place, as a public symbol that no matter what uncertainty there is the world, we are hope-filled people. By placing a yellow ribbon or balloon out in front of your home, this sign of hope shows solidarity with those facing tough times as COVID-19 measures continue to increase across our communities and the world.

On the last day of Term 1, students placed yellow ribbons around the College campus to represent their boarding sisters who had already returned home from school. The girls are also contacting their Ursuline sisters across the world to join them in in solidarity and share this campaign of hope. With many ribbons already being tied across the world, including around the largest tree in the gardens of the Generalate in Rome, as part of the initiative.

Included below are some of the many photos shared with the College in support of the Yellow Hope Campaign. To share a picture of a yellow ribbon or ballon of hope at your home on social media with us, please use the tags #hopeiscatching and #UrsieHope2020 and tag our St Ursula’s College Toowoomba account.
