College Theme at St Joseph Campus

Thursday, February 16, 2023

To kick start the academic year and for students to have a deep understand of our college theme “we are called to care for creation”, year 7-10 students partook in an activity during RE classes to broaden their understanding of how environmental awareness is closely linked to our spirituality and faith. Our college theme which was taken during a speech made by Pope Francis during a visit to the Philippines allows students and staff to explore the Catholic Social Teaching ‘care for our common home’ so that all members of Antonine College can reflect on the earth and all life on it that is a part of God’s creation. We are called to respect this gift. We are responsible for taking care of the world we live in and for sharing all the wonders and resources the earth gives us. Pope Francis is aware that the environmental problems we face extends well beyond us as individuals but asks us to reduce participation in materialistic forms of consumer culture. With this, students reflected and brainstormed the conscious decisions they make in their lives each day and how each one of us have the ability to break the chain of destruction and move towards a sustainable future. Students pledged 3 ways they could make an easy change to their everyday life to care for our home; God’s creation. This mural is now displayed in our Library window.
