The Eco Mural Displayed
Pope Francis’ encyclical of 2015, “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord” asks us to care for the Earth, our common home. The Juniors responded to the Pope’s call and put together letters with their responses to his encyclical and sent them to Pope Francis.
Now the Nursery and Preps have been working on their own response to Pope Francis’ call through some creative upcycling as Mrs Morris, Nursery Practitioner, reports:
‘From the Nursery to Prep III the pupils spent half a term collecting different coloured bottle tops which were then used to make a mural. This was part of a project to highlight recycling the objects we use every day and then using them to create a colourful mural for the Prep Playground.
Each child contributed to the mural by choosing a handful of bottle tops to stick on the picture of ‘all hands working together around the world’.
The result, a beautiful eco mural, a testament to team work and creativity, is now displayed in the Prep Playground for all to enjoy.
