'Then God said, And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild, large and small.' - Genesis 1:26
At St Francis Xavier we recongise our responsibility as stewards of God's creation to care for the environment. Our Eco-Warrior team work under the guidance of Miss Gardner to ensure that as a school we live out Catholic social teaching with regards caring for creation to the very best of our abilities.
Here are some of the fantastic entries for the Energy Saving Week Competition, the Eco Warriors tasked the children in school to design a poster promoting saving energy. The children were given the passage, 'The earth is Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the water.' Psalm 24:1-2.
The Care for Creation team have been working hard to create an assembly on how to best care for God's creation. The children researched various Bible scriptures that showed the importance of caring for our planet. After creating their presentation, the Care for Creation team worked together to deliver a whole school assembly.
The Care for Creation Team invite you to enter our competition!
As part of energy saving week, we ask that you create a poster focusing on the importance of saving energy to help us look after God's creation.
On your poster please refer to the following scripture quote
“The earth is the Lord′s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.” Psalm 24:1-2
In KS1, the children learnt of ways to care for God's creatures. They designed cosy hibernation dens to keep the animals safe and warm.
Our KS2 children had an inspiring visit from the Doncaster Council team. Together we explored how we can look after God's planet by reusing, reducing and recycling.
Year Three have been reflecting upon what we learnt from our CAFOD workshop and exploring how they can make a change. We have been learning about the importance of recycling and decided to recycle our plastic bottles at school alongside our paper. We are even bringing in any plastic bottles from home!
