Why does St Gerard’s celebrate World Earth day?
As a school, we have been learning about what is happening to our wonderful Earth. From Nursery to Year 6, we have looked at different issues, which contribute to the loss of habitat, endangered animals, extinction of plants and animals and global warming. We have been learning more about the natural processes and what we can do to help restore the world’s eco systems.
The theme for 2023 is ‘Invest in our Planet’ and ‘Protect our Species’. This is designed to persuade governments and people around the world that action is needed to improve our environment.
“The Earth is our environment to protect and the garden to tend to.” – Pope Francis
