Catholic Education Week 2024

Catholic Education Week provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the strengths and achievements of our 38 Catholic schools as well as the people who contribute to Catholic Education Tasmania’s ongoing success.

Catholic education has supported Tasmanian families for nearly 200 years. We are proud to be partners in Tasmania’s future; partners with governments, families, and Church communities in achieving shared educational goals for young Tasmanians. We work alongside our first nations people, towards a better future for all.

Recognition Awards

The Catholic Education Commission Tasmania Recognition Awards were established to recognise and honour those who have contributed in a special way to the growth, development, and achievements of Catholic Education Tasmania.

It is this service of others from staff, friends, and supporters of Catholic Education Tasmania that we recognise and celebrate during Catholic Education Week. These three awards are presented to those within our community who have made a significant contribution to Catholic Education in a variety of different ways.

Award categories

Awards are presented for the following three categories:

  • Exemplary Contribution to Catholic Education | recognises individuals whose contribution to Catholic Education Tasmania has been exemplary
  • Outstanding Service as an Employee within Catholic Education | recognises individuals who give outstanding service as employees in Catholic Education Tasmania
  • Outstanding Contribution as a Friend in Catholic Schools | recognises individuals whose contribution to one or more Catholic school communities has been outstanding

Nominations for 2024 are now open!
