In Laudato Si, Pope Francis asks us "What kind of world do we want to leave for those who come after us?"
At St Joseph's School we have a wonderful example of how to care for the world and for others in Mary MacKillop and Fr Julian Tenison Woods.
Fr Julian knew that Science helps us understand all of creation and that we can find happiness through living in harmony with nature.
Mary MacKillop and the Sisters of Joseph lived in harmony and in community and were always mindful of the needs of others.
The students of St Joseph's proudly carry on the tradition of our founders in this Environmental Charter where they have some excellent ideas of their own.
At St Joseph's School Murray Bridge we:
Respect God's creation, the environment and our community by:
Learning from the church about to care for God's creation.
Respecting our school.
Keeping our classrooms and yard tidy.
Caring for plants, trees, other people, animals, the world, and the air.
Taking car of living creatures and leaving nature as it is.
