What is the Live Simply Award?

As a school, we have decided to pursue the CAFOD Live Simply award.  This is an opportunity for us to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us.”

To earn this award, we need to show as a school we are living:

  • Simply- how we encourage our families to consume less in our daily lives. Taking the time to be more reflective, prayerful and considerate to others.

  • In solidarity with the poor- being aware that other people might be experiencing difficulties, vulnerabilities, injustice or exclusion.

  • Sustainably with creation- learning ways that can help rebalance our relationship with the environment. Remembering that God gave us this Earth for us to care for.

Our journey so far...

We have chosen a group of LiveSimply ambassadors who meet up together on a regular basis to discuss how we can live more simply, sustainably and in solidarity with others. 

During our first meeting, we came up with our action plan. This was an exciting opportunity to discuss ideas and bring our thoughts together. Our action plan is attached below.
