TAKE CARE OF, RESPECT AND VALUE OUR 'COMMON HOME'
Welcome to St Julie's Eco Club!
We meet after school on Wednesday in the Year 5 classroom (3.15-4.15)
WHAT DO WE DO?
We care for life in our school grounds and in the school building. By doing this, we hope to care for the people, plants and animals around us. By hosting Fairtrade sales, we also aim to help people living in other countries.
WHY DO WE DO THIS?
Because we care! Wasn't that a simple answer?
Laudato Si (Praise Be To You!)
We care for the world in which we live. Pope Francis wrote a letter to EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD asking us to care for the Earth - our common home.
The letter discusses the damage we are doing to the Earth. The Pope asks ‘every person living on this planet’ to make urgent changes to our lifestyles and to help to protect the planet.
Laudato Si’ deals with many environmental issues including:
- climate change
- loss of biodiversity ( animal and plant life)
- decline in the quality of human life.
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.’
