Laudato Si' at Bede Polding College Parramatta

The Eco Group recently introduced a series of signs around the College to explain the many projects in which we are involved. Projects include building garden beds from industrial waste, capturing rainwater to minimise urban runoff and reduce consumption of potable water, finding new homes at an orphanage in the Philippines for unused laptops, rehabilitating an area of rare Cumberland Plain Woodland and paper recycling. Each sign has a unique QR code that is linked to a presentation that provides more detailed information and images.

So far, the signs have been used by:

  •  Year 9 RE classes investigating the different ways the College practices stewardship
  • the Year 12 Earth and Environmental Science class investigating the impacts of and solutions to climate change
  • Year 10 students from St Andrews Catholic College investigating stewardship
  • Our next visitors will be year 3 students from Chisholm Catholic Primary School who are investigating Sustainability.
