Introduction to Catholic Schools Week
This year the theme for the week is ‘Catholic Schools – A Light for Every Generation’. Catholic schools are committed to the education and formation of the young person in every aspect of their lives. Thus Catholic schools are light for parents, pupils, staff and society in every generation. In selecting this theme we are clearly connecting the vision of Catholic education with the mission of the Gospel, to bring the light of Christ to the world and to allow that light to shine through and in all that we do in our work in Catholic schools. This theme reminds us that we are constantly challenged to let that light shine for the present generation and this will remain part of our task for future generations. It also allows us to remember with great gratitude all those who through their work in establishing schools and places of education brought the light of Christ to many generations of Irish people in the past.
The resources in this pack are intended for all those working in partnership with the school community. The resources, which have been produced for primary and post-primary schools in English, Irish and Polish language versions, are designed to be used with:
- Students in the classroom
- Staff members
- Members of Boards of Management/Governors
- The wider parish community
We hope that you find the resources included in this pack helpful as you celebrate Catholic Schools Week this year.
