The Common Good
‘The common good is about how to live well together. It is the whole network of social conditions which enable individuals and groups to flourish and live a full, genuinely human life. At the heart of the common good, solidarity acknowledges that all are responsible for all, not only as individuals but collectively at every level.’ Choosing the Common Good, Bishops’ Conference, 2010:p8
At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Infant School & Nursery we believe that working for the common good and raising awareness of Catholic Social Teachings, is not only our responsibility but our calling and therefore central to our faith in action. We aim to inspire our school community, to live out our mission statement through our prayer life and service to our local and wider community.
PARISH & COMMUNITY LINKS
At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Infant School & Nursery, we value the importance of maintaining strong parish and community links and we constantly seek opportunities to develop these further. These relationships are seen to be vital in the wellbeing and development of our pupils as well as contributing to a broad and balanced curriculum. They are a reminder to us all that we do not exist in isolation but are part of a much wider community, not only in Willesden Green but regionally, nationally, and the wider world. Our pupils receive much through engagement with individuals, groups and organisations and thoroughly enjoy being active participants and contributing to the common good both locally and in the wider world.
