Care for our Common Home
As a Catholic community we respond to Pope Francis and Bishop John’s profound invitation to everyone on the planet to Care for our Common Home – God’s gift of creation, all people and all creatures. Our children are encouraged to recycle, preserve energy and protect and show love to their environment both within and outside of school. Over the last few years 100s of our children have been awarded a Caritas certificate for their endeavours to follow the vision of the Pope and our Bishop.
