In 2019, through the Return and Earn partnership with Vinnies, our schools have recycled 75,317 containers raising much needed funds for Vinnies social works.
This means that we have reduced the amount of rubbish going to landfill and we have also raised money for the St Vincent de Paul Society who assist those people in our community who need a helping hand.
Our schools are doing their bit to respond to "the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor" that Pope Francis calls us to in Laudato Si'.
