Our faith calls us to love God and to love our neighbours in every situation, especially our sisters and brothers living in poverty. Following in the footsteps of Christ, we hope to make present in our unjust and broken world, the justice, love and peace of God.
At St. Dunstan’s we aim to create equal opportunities for all our pupils and encourage them to behave in the same way within the wider community.
Fratelli Tutti - 'All Brothers and Sisters'
In the Pope’s encyclical Fratelli Tutti, he calls on us all to play our part in building peace, and to focus on becoming a neighbour to others – in particular to welcome migrants, and to resist racism, prejudice and discrimination. We believe every human person is made in the image and likeness of God. This is a gift that we all share as fellow human beings. God is present in every human person, regardless of religion, culture, nationality, orientation or economic standing. Each one of us is unique and beautiful. We are called to treat every person and every creature with loving respect.
At St Dunstan’s, we are responding to this call. It is not enough to be a school where we aren’t racist, we are striving to be actively anti-racist and to teach every child how to be an ally to those who are marginalised or suffer prejudice and discrimination.
“There is no democracy with hunger, nor development with poverty, nor justice in inequality.”
Pope Francis, 2019
