Integral Ecology

What does that mean for us at IHM?


Pope Francis, through his recent publication 'Laudato Si', or "Praise be to you", challenges us to consider our deep relationship with all of creation.

This encyclical is a game-changer in that it offers us a powerful moral and spiritual imperative for environmental and spiritual action.  We are called on to embrace a new lifestyle that respects all of creation and to commit to change.

At IHM, we begin this journey with a focus on the reduction of waste.  Families are asked to provide 'Nude Food' (no packaging) in lunch boxes.

Our students have really driven the change at our school and taken ownership of the initiative.  There are no landfill bins in the yard now and children must sort their waste.
