ARC launches Catholic Schools Eco Newsletter

10 March 2008:

ARC has launched a newsletter to bring Catholic schools together to talk about what they are doing to help the natural environment. The first schools newsletter was issued in February.

As part of The Sound of Many Waters environmental initiative by Clifton Cathedral in Bristol, and following a presentation given at St Brendan’s Sixth Form College in October 2007, many Catholic schools and colleges in the diocese felt they needed a forum where they could exchange views and share experiences about the need to protect the environment.

The eco newsletter articles will be guided by the teachers and staff at the schools, enabling them to compare information about ecological issues - sharing successes but also sharing problems and problem-solving.

It is hoped that the newsletter will be issued on a monthly or six weekly basis, and will initially be edited by ARC.

“Thank you very much for all the work that you and ARC are putting into this project”. Alison Spurrell, Eco-Schools Coordinator, St Teresa’s.

“I am finding that linking environment work with our faith much more challenging and would particularly appreciate support and ideas in this area” said a Coordinator from one school in the Bristol region.

One primary school teacher commented: “it is a great idea in promoting dialogue“.
