Catholic Schools Week is a celebration that brings together Catholic school communities across New South Wales, held 8-14 March 2015.
It is a wonderful opportunity for schools to celebrate what happens every day in our Catholic schools and in the Diocese of Parramatta, schools will be opening their doors to showcase learning and teaching at its best with a range of activities and events planned for students and parents during the week. You will be able to join in celebration as we share photos and news from our schools via our website and social media channels.
The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2015 is ‘Educating for today and tomorrow’. This theme ties in with the
50th anniversary of Gravissimum Educationis, a document of the Second Vatican Council that was created by the Synod Fathers in 1965. The document recognised the continuing need for the Church to support parents in the education of their children so that they might be better equipped to participate professionally in the social, political and economic life of their communities well into the future.
Catholic students across NSW also have the opportunity to share in $5,000 of prizes by entering a 30 second video in the Catholic Schools Week competition. Students are encouraged to think creatively about what Catholic schools of tomorrow will look like and enter the competition online. More details are available on the Catholic schools website.
