We are committed to working towards meeting the needs of all our neighbours by protecting our habitats and providing our generations to come with opportunities to develop better schools, better communities, and better futures in Christ.
As a Catholic community we believe that every person is created in the image of God and their life is worthy of intrinsic dignity. The effects of the environmental crisis we are all dealing with globally plays a huge role in the overall health of human beings as well as living conditions. Ignoring this would be disregarding the dignity of a human person. Therefore, it is our collective moral obligation to enhance human health and well-being by preventing the impact of climate change and improving the lives of all our neighbours within our local and global community.
The book of Genesis beautifully depicts our responsibility as stewards of the Earth. Our attitudes towards the environment and how we put them into practice have a direct impact on God’s creation, including the world’s most vulnerable species and their habitats. As an academy, we must protect God’s precious creation by promoting an eco-friendly mindset to provide better futures for our generations to come, so that they too can enjoy God’s gift and thrive to fulfil their God-given purpose. Education is key in enabling this to happen. To have better schools, better communities and better futures in Christ we must allow nature to thrive as well.
As a Catholic academy, it is our duty to develop and embed a sustainable whole school approach to meet our three Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
- Good Health and Well-being
- Climate Change
- Zero Hunger.
By doing so, we can actively and truly practise the belief that ‘God has created each person to celebrate life to the full’ (John 10: 10).
