Laudato Si

Our school follows the advice given by Pope Francis in the encyclical 'Laudato Si'.

Laudato Si’ discusses the damage being inflicted on the Earth by humans and calls on ‘every person living on this planet’ to make urgent changes to our lifestyles and how we consume energy in order to protect the planet.

It deals with many environmental issues including:

  • pollution

  • climate change

  • water

  • loss of biodiversity

  • decline in the quality of human life.

In his letter Pope Francis implores us to work together to create a better world for future generations and asks us to make the necessary changes in our lives in order to take care of, respect and value our ‘common home’.

We work hard to understand the important messages contained in this letter.

“If someone has not learned to stop and admire something beautiful, we should not be surprised if he or she treats everything as an object to be used and abused without scruple."

   ‘God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.’
   Genesis 1:31

         ‘We come together to take charge of this home which he has entrusted to us.’
        Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 244

 We aim to promote the awe and wonder of nature for every child in our school. The children are taught to appreciate the world around us and understand how best to look after the world we have been given. Our children help to keep the school grounds tidy,  make sustainability pledges and give time in the local community.

Here is our amazing Compost Crew!

They ensure that all of the classes compost the appropriate food waste and collect it each day. We will eventually reuse the waste as compost for our beautiful school gardens.
