A group of Form 4 students from St Margaret College was invited to reflect upon the need of ‘thinking more of others and less of me’ at the beginning of this scholastic year. Senior teacher Martin Azzopardi sdc, invited his students to reflect upon the message of the encyclical letter of Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti (All Brothers) and witness its message with other students.

Fratelli Tutti is an urgent invitation to all humanity to rethink our lifestyles, our friendships, and the organisation of our societies and the meaning of our existence especially now that we are all experiencing fear, pain, uncertainty and limitations due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Pope Francis offers us the opportunity to think about a new vision of society in which human dignity and the human rights of all are to be respected.

During the exercise, students listened to the song ‘Less of Me’ by Glen Campbell and reflected upon the meaning of its lyrics.

Following the lesson, St Margaret College students were invited to take Pope Francis’ call seriously to be loving brothers and sisters to all those in need of our help.

This school project aims to reach five of the main goals proposed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: good health and well-being; quality education; gender equality; reduced inequalities; and peace, justice and strong institutions.
