Croxteth college joins the Don Bosco Green Alliance

Based in the heart of Croxteth, St John Bosco Arts College has taken huge strides to become eco-friendly and more sustainable.

As part of its mission, the school has joined the Don Bosco Green Alliance. The alliance is an international programme where Salesian communities globally join forces to support Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’, and his passion for the environment.

As part of the programme, the school has made three clear commitments that will see them develop green areas within the school, including planting more trees, supporting the development of small-scale ecosystems, and striving towards a school environment which reduces waste including paper, plastic and food.

St John Bosco’s eco-club has been busy working towards setting the foundations to deliver on these commitments and recently helped transform the Year 8 yard into what promises to be a beautiful space in bloom.

The school have received generous donations of oak seeds thanks to their partnership with the Tree Council, as well as dedicated staff members supplying sunflower seeds and plant pots to the project.

The students named each of the seeds, including one named after the school’s patron saint, Don Bosco.

The Don Bosco Green Alliance has already shown its admiration for the students’ work after sharing their new project with Salesian communities globally.

Eco-club lead, Mrs Armstrong, said: “We are delighted to be a part of the Don Bosco Green Alliance and have our student’s incredible work shared with a network of Salesian communities around the world.

“We have big plans at the eco-club and lots more seeds to plant. This is just the beginning of our eco-club and the start of our school’s commitment to become more eco-friendly.”
