Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 27 – 31 July. 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 across the state and country.
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 307 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 146,000 students and employ approximately 19,000 teachers and staff and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
Due to COVID-19, celebrations this year have been restricted. Here at St Joseph’s we will be integrating activities into our regular school week and celebrating a liturgy in the Church on Friday 7th August.
