On the 16th September 2020, (the feast of St Ninian, the 10th anniversary of Pope Benedict’s XVI visit to Scotland and during the Season of Creation), SCES launched "Laudato Si’ Schools Scotland"
This is an exciting new initiative, introduced by SCES, SCIAF and Justice & Peace Scotland, to respond to the Holy Father’s call to integrate Ecological Education into all Catholic schools. (Please see attached document from the Vatican detailing the vision for this anniversary year and for introducing Ecological action to the wider Church for your own professional reading below.)
A printed copy of the Laudato Si’ School Brochure has been posted to all schools with information on what the programme entails and how to register.
Below you will find a 3 minute video file and further information to introduce the project to pupils and staff. This video has the same images as contained in the power point, should you want to spend more time looking at the content.
The You Tube Video link below will take you to a 30 minute teacher CLPL session, hosted by SCIAF and delivered by SCES during the Season of Creation. This gives further detail of the programme.
In order to register for Laudato Si' Schools Scotland, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are aiming to have all resources in schools in time for Catholic Education Week (current health restrictions permitting).
The cost is £200 for schools that subscribe to SCES. All other schools, please contact SCES for further details on cost.
