Season of Creation - A Month of Sustainability Events
The Season of Creation, from September 1st to October 4th, is a time when Christians around the world celebrate all creation. The Sustainability Working Group of the Northern Beaches Catholic School Parents decided this would be an ideal time to reflect on how we, as parents, can make a difference in caring for God's creation. A wonderful time to take action and do our small part for the future of our children.
Please join us in the events below, to learn, to educate, to reflect and to take action.
What can you do?
