Mt Druitt:  An outer suburb of Sydney, regarded as among the most socially disadvantaged in Australia.  Its main ministry is to support the operation of the Marist Learning Zone, a joint project of the Marists and Catholic Education. Their aim is to re-integrate students who are currently not attending school.  The community members teach in the centre, following the normal school curriculum in a creative way adapted to particular needs. They have established ties with the local aboriginal community and assist in homework tutoring and cultural activities. The community lives in a rented house near the centre of Mt Druitt.
