Live Simply Award

We are delighted to be working towards achieving the CAFOD Livesimply Award.

The livesimply award is an opportunity for Catholic schools to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si' to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.

It is awarded to communities who can show how they have been living:

  • Simply
  • In solidarity with people in poverty
  • Sustainably with creation

The award celebrates what we have already done and inspires us to do more.  It helps our community to live, not just more simply, but also more fully.

In order to achieve our award and live more simply this year, our Pupil Chaplains have been organising collections for Richmond Foodbank, increasing the amount of materials we reuse and recycle in school, taking steps to reduce our use of electricity and water in school, and organised a cake sale for Macmillan and CAFOD.
