Friendship Schools

Kadasig established the Friendship School Program in 2008 in Cebu, Philippines. The Program enables Australian school students to connect with students in disadvantaged schools in the Philippines. This program is one of sharing, caring for others, and developing friendships.


The Australian students provide all the basic school requirements such as pens, pencils, school books, uniforms, and sanitary needs for the whole school. In addition, the Australian students fundraise for specific needs for their friendship school. Some examples of previous fundraising efforts raised money for ceiling fans and play equipment.

Kadasig is proud to have partnered the following friendship schools:

  • St Francis Xavier Primary, Montmorency, Australia with Buhisan Elementary, Philippines
  • Holy Trinity Primary, Eltham North, Australia with San Rafael Elementary, Philippines
  • St Kevin’s Primary, Lower Templestowe, Australia with Loyo Elementary, Philippines
  • St Gregory the Great Primary, Doncaster, Australia with Sayaw Elementary, Philippines
  • St Elizabeth Primary, Dandenong North, Australia with Matutinao Elementary, Philippines
  • St Kevin’s Primary, Hampton Park, Australia with Campaggna Elementary, Philippines
  • St Andre’s Primary, Clayton South, Australia with Maghanoy Elementary School, Philippines


Kadasig also has one very special Kindergarten partnership:

  • Glover St Kindergarten, East Bentleigh, Australia with Phase V Day Care Centre, Philippines and the Kadasig Day Care in Patupat, Philippines
