Season of Creation at Marymount Convent School

October 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Pope Francis’ Message

In line with Pope’s messaging on caring for our common home (Laudato Si), Marymount Convent School celebrated the season of creation with a sharing and some hands-on activities to bring to awareness in pupils the important role they play in caring for creation, our common home.

Introduction

There was an introduction to the season of Creation during morning assembly. The school then launched the hands-on activities in celebration of the season. During the sharing, information on St Francis of Assisi and how he loved and embraced nature and God’s creation was highlighted.

Keeping in mind why we celebrate the Season of Creation, As a community, we come together in prayer and action to care for our common home”, MCS adopted the following structure:

i) Prayer

Our daily morning prayer was on praying for our common home. Our daily Sacred Time at 12 noon involved reflection on the creation.

ii) Sustainability

A clean-up project that helps all of creation to thrive (classroom corridors, canteen, hall) was initiated. The importance of care, consideration and responsibility for our environment was emphasised.

iii) Advocacy

Voice out and show through hands-on action on recycling and upcycling

Voice out

Each student were tasked to come up with a slogan / jingle on caring for our common home and/or recycling. Prizes were awarded to the top 3 entries per level

Action

Students were also involved in recycling; they collected bottles, learnt how to wash and dry the bottles for reuse. The awareness and action does not cease with the end of the season, it continues through the schools constant emphasis, activities and programmes on sustainability and recycling efforts.

Students will be involved in FairPrice Supermarket’s used textbook donation. They will learn to use rubberised shoes as part of a recycling project and use recycled bottles for terrarium making activities.
