CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Next week is Catholic Education Week. This annual event is held to promote the special ethos of Catholic schools and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day. The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Sharing the Journey.
Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
There are 302 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 146,000 students and employ more than 18,500 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
Our school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us. Please note that during this week we also have The Life Education Van Visiting. The Timetable of events for Catholic Education Week and for the Life Education Van are outlined in our latest newsletter..
Two of our students were selected in the Emerald District Track and Field team and will now compete in the Central Highlands Selection trials on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th July here in Emerald at Marist College. We wish all the best to Cleah Turner (Year 6) in the 100m and 200m 11 Years girls age group and Laura O’Brien (Year 5) in the 1500m also in the 11 Years age group.
