The Eco Warriors travelled to the Columban Fathers for an Eco Retreat.

We taught about our role as Eco Warriors and how we can encourage others to look after the world that God has given us.

During the day we created some artwork using natural materials from our surroundings. We were able to take part in pond dipping and were very excited when James caught a rare newt in his net. After this we went searching for butterflies and tried to identify the different types that we saw. In the field we saw the trees that we had planted as part of the tree planting project with the Philippines, and were surprised with how tall they have grown.

We ended our fantastic day by taking part in a bee treasure hunt.

We would like to thank James, Anna and all the Columban Fathers for welcoming us today – we really enjoyed it.
