Inspired by Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si (Care for Our Common Home)CAFOD aim to show their for support World Earth Day. We are using this assembly as the springboard to inspire students and staff to live out the words of Laudato Si, locally, nationally and globally.

    The goals we set as a college will be in line with the targets of the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2021 (COP26). This November the conference takes place in Glasgow and will 'bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.'
