Rationale of Vision Statement

The introduction lines to the vision statement '...we are called to care for creation' reflects a Catholic perspective of the Bruntland definition of sustainability, which states that “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable - to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” (WCED 1987)
'...we are called to care for creation' utilises the Vision for Catholic Education in the Archdiocese and matches its key elements with the literature and success practice in ecological sustainability in education.

Teach ~ focuses on classroom learning ​and teaching​

Challenge ~ focuses upon the whole of school change and organisational culture

Transform ~ focuses on embedding change in the wider community​
