LLL Earthcare Grant

We are excited to announce that we have successfully applied for a grant to improve our gardens!  As part of the new Lutheran Earthcare charter, which is focused on caring for God’s creation, the Lutheran Laypeople’s League (www.lll.org.au) has made available $2500 to help us care for the little patch of earth we call Sunshine Christian School. We are looking at Principle Three: Planet earth is a wondrous web of inter-related forces, mysteries and mazes where we are all inter-connected and all belong. We hope to plant native trees and bushes that will attract native birds and butterflies, helping the students to learn about the relationships involved in ecology. We are also looking at Principle Six: Planet Earth has been wounded by our crimes against creation and is calling for personal care from usWe hope to care for our land by planting plants that are indigenous to this area, as well as Australian natives.  We hope to increase our students’ understanding of sustainability and decrease the impact of our buildings, concrete and artificial grass.
