Eco Council

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote a letter to the world, entitled ‘Laudato Si’ and asked for everyone to protect the Earth and to care for our common home. In the letter he says, ‘The Earth is God’s gift to us, it is full of beauty and wonder and it belongs to everyone, but what we see today is that our common home has never been so hurt and mistreated.’


Bishop John Arnold, wrote his own letter in March 2019, reminding us to take action before matters become irreversible. Bishop John has asked the parishes and schools of Salford to take action and to heal the damage, mend our plant and to care for our common home.


St Luke’s are proud to pledge our efforts to assist Pope Francis and Bishop John to begin to make the changes to protect our common home.

In our classes, we have selected 2 representatives to join our school Eco Council group. These children are our champions and will lead the change, but we will all be in this together. We have started our journey to become an ‘Eco School’ and have also made pledges to ‘Live Simply’.

The Eco Council have been busy planting the outside tubs with spring flowers and the whole school have planted sunflower seeds to brighten up their homes.

Each class have grown cress seeds and a bean in a jar to prove that you don’t have to use soil for plants to germinate.

 The area behind the year 6 classroom is going to be designed and made into an outdoor classroom and prayer area.

The Eco Council have drawn plans for their suggestions and ideas for this space.
