In June 2015 Pope Francis delivered an important encyclical Laudato Si – On care for our common home. In it he poses the question “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” (160).
Working with children to connect with life in all its forms, to love the created world and to care for it, is central to our mission as Catholic Schools. At St Joseph’s Tranmere we strive to live sustainably as a community and to educate the children and wider community in the importance of this. Our projects include waste management, reduction in water use, energy efficiency, gardening and nature play.
