Catholic Education Week 2017 will be held from Sunday 19 to Saturday 25 March

Catholic Education Week 2017

All 38 Tasmanian Catholic schools and colleges are joining together to celebrate the valuable contribution Catholic schools have made to Tasmanian communities.

This year’s theme is ‘Love God with all your heart’ and is drawn from St Mark’s Gospel 12:30.

Catholic Education Week is both an acknowledgement of the contribution the Catholic education to the lives of the over 16,000 students currently attending our schools and to local communities across the state.

“One of the central pillars of Catholic education is creating a sense of belonging and community and providing the support that is integral to enabling students become the best versions of themselves,’’ said Director of Catholic Education, John Mula. 

We are immensely proud of our Catholic heritage, and are committed to celebrating and showcasing the achievements of students in our school.

Catholic Education Week is about strengthening relationships between all those that have a stake in our schools – students, teachers, parents, priests, parishioners and members of the wider community.

Catholic Education Week provides a wonderful occasion for students, teachers, families and parishes to acknowledge the strengths and achievements of Catholic schools.

“Catholic Education Week is also a time to publically acknowledge the contributions of staff both past and present for their commitment to their students to offer distinctive educational experiences that underpin our schools’ ability to create strong leaders and adults of integrity and compassion,” said Mr Mula.

To celebrate Catholic Education Week a variety of statewide and school based activities are planned. Individual schools will be celebrating with their communities and schools will come together in their regions to celebrate Mass in Burnie, Launceston and Hobart.

With a tradition of more than 192 years in Tasmania and record student numbers in our schools across the State, we have much to commemorate.
