The Eco Award

Pope Francis wrote a letter to Catholics worldwide called 'Laudato Si'. In it he gave use a very important message and that message was for us all to be more aware of our environment. Not only that, but, to also make steps to reduce the amount of waste and pollution we create by making small changes to our daily lives. 

We are committed to making our environment greener. One way we have done this is by setting up an Eco Cadet group where two children from each year group will work with Mrs McKenna to find ways to make us more aware of our impact on the environment and ways we can reduce our negative impact. 

Last year, (2018-2019), we made our first steps towards a bronze Eco award and thanks to the hard work and dedication of Mrs McKenna and her Eco Cadets we achieved this! You will now see on the bottom of our newsletter the Bronze award badge.

Tuesday 15th October 2019 - Local Litter Picking
The Eco Cadets went outside today with the local council to help clean our environment. This is a clear example of different members of our society coming together to make Stechford a better place. We were very proud of our Eco cadets as they behaved impeccably and were dedicated at making our environment cleaner. 

Friday 4th October 2019 - Eco Cadet Mass

The Eco Cadets presented a lovely mass on the memorial of St. Francis of Assisi who is known as the patron saint of looking after the environment. They read eloquently and acted maturely during the service. At the end of the mass they revealed something very exciting! They will be collecting plastic bottle tops to create a piece of artwork outside of the school. Please help us by saving any plastic bottle tops you have and bring them into school. Thank you. Below is an example of the artwork we would like to make.
