Educating for Sustainability

St Clare's Primary School draws its inspiration and moral purpose from the Franciscan charism, from the broader Catholic Church, and ultimately from Jesus Christ. Stewardship is a foundational teaching of both St Francis and St Clare, and therefore the school is committed to sustainable practices.
“Care for the environment represents a challenge for all humanity. It is a common and universal duty, that of respecting a common good, destined for all, by preventing anyone from using with impunity the different categories of beings, whether living or inanimate – animals, plants, the natural elements – simply as one wishes, according to one’s own economic needs.” (John Paul II Homily in Val Visdende, Italy, par 466 of the Compendium of The Social Doctrine of the Church, 2004.)
