We are delighted to report that we have achieved CAFOD’s Live Simply Award!
Students have been engaged in a number of projects to demonstrate their commitment to living simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the poor of the world.
In the last twelve months some of the actions carried out have included: the work of the newly formed prep eco –club; the creation of a simple prayer garden in front of School House; our continued support of the poor and vulnerable through our charitable giving; the establishment of ‘Meat Free Monday’; support of the Fairtrade foundation through our tuck shop.
All of these actions, and others, have been carried out in the spirit of stewardship and in our response to Pope Francis’ plea in Laudato Si’, that we should: Listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor.
Huge congratulations to all concerned.
Let’s hope that this award is only the beginning, and that as a community we can continue to challenge injustice and bring about change for the poor of the world and the future of the planet.
