Why Faith Schools Matter and the Challenges of Divestment

2.00

I have found Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’ to be an invaluable teaching resource. Shortly after it was promulgated I linked up with one of our local primary schools in Limerick, Scoil Íde, Corbally, so that some of my B.Ed. students could have the experience of teaching the encyclical’s key tenets to sixth class pupils. I believed they would learn the content and meaning of
the encyclical more easily through the experience of teaching it themselves.
