Catholic Schools Guide
Each year, our Guide carries a different theme. This year, our theme is ‘Environment and Sustainability’.
Carbon emissions, deforestation and spiraling population growth are just some of the environmental factors that are placing enormous stress on our fragile world. We are custodians of this world, let us ensure we make it better not worse for the future generations. Our Catholic schools too are playing and important role in raising awareness and taking action.
I am grateful to our feature writers. John Phelan, Manager of Communications and Marketing at Brisbane Catholic Education shows the extraordinary leadership so many of our Catholic schools are making in the field of sustainability. This year, we are blessed with the talents of Jacqui Rémond, National Director of Catholic Earthcare Australia, the ecological agency of the Catholic Church in Australia. Jacqui’s passion and drive are extraordinary. Regular readers of the Guide will recognise that over many years Catholic Schools Guide has forged a special partnership with Australian Catholic University. The University is rapidly forging a formidable reputation as it goes from strength to strength. This year, we feature two leading lights: Mark Doggett, National Manager Sustainability, and Professor Anne Cummins, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Students, Learning and Teaching).
Catholic Schools Guide is proud to be supporting both Caritas Australia and Catholic Earthcare. All support is provided pro bono and our Guide encourages all readers to do what they can to get their school involved in supporting the extraordinary work that these two agencies provide.
