They are certainly living up to the example of their school patron, St Francis of Assisi, who showed through his life, the connection we have with all of creation and the importance of caring for all creatures, each other and the planet.
National Recycling Week provides an important opportunity for councils, workplaces, schools and individuals to improve their recycling knowledge, build better recycling habits and build trust in recycling.
