Stewardship - Being Responsible Guardians of our World. 


The children worked in eight groups made up of members of the different school houses.  They were allocated an area of the school grounds and spent the afternoon weeding, planting, cutting back and generally tidying up our school grounds.  The aim of the afternoon was to understand how care of our environment and being out of door are all very good for our well being and mental health.  Being responsible guardians of our world is also one of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching that we have chosen to focus on.

If You Were An Engineer

As part of science week the children were asked to create their own invention for the If I were an engineer competition. They could invent anything, but generally they thought about things that would help those around them.
