Laudato Si'

Laudato Si' - a message from Pope Francis

The chaplains at St John Fisher have been so moved by the message from Pope Francis that they wanted to do something about it at school with the younger pupils. They are planning to carry out an assembly to educate others and share the message from Pope Francis that we all need to listen to and act on. 

As a school, we are focused on helping improve our environment. When we planned out curriculum, we ensured to embed an ECO thread across the Geography themes and every year group has an ECO theme at some point during the year. We have promoted the word of Pope Francis and are keen for the pupils and community to do so too. Working together we can all make a difference and help save our planet. 

The pupils and families at St John Fisher are doing a number of things to help:

  • ECO warriors support across all the classes to follow our ECO code
  • collecting pens for recycling
  • collecting batteries for recycling
  • conservation area - our 'quiet/reflection' space, with an area to grow vegetables, a wildflower meadow and mini-beast hotel
  • green wall planted along the fence by the street and around the Nursery fence, helping reduce the pollution in the air.
