CATHOLIC EDUCATION WEEK
Week 3 beginning Monday 25th July sees Catholic schools throughout Queensland celebrating Catholic Education Week. Catholic Education Week is an annual opportunity for all Catholic schools to celebrate and promote their  distinctive mission and ethos, and to highlight the great things that take place in Catholic schools every day. 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.

The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Opening Doors in the Year of Mercy. 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. During Catholic Education Week 2016, Catholic education communities across Queensland are invited to celebrate and share how they are opening doors for others. There are 300 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 147,000 students and employ 19,000 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.

Catholic Education WeekOur school is planning a number of activities during the week and we hope you are able to join in the celebrations with us. Among these are the Southern Deanery Mass and Activity Day being held in conjunction with the Catholic Primary schools in the Southern Deanery. Student Representatives will also be attending the Diocesan Mass and NET Ministries Workshops being held at St Monica’s Cathedral.

NAIDOC CELEBRATIONS
Last week we celebrated NAIDOC Week on Thursday with a wonderful liturgy, lunchtime and classroom activities. These celebrations are an important part of our culture and remind us of the history and culture of the land and people who arrived here first. I thank Karen Joyce and her wonderful team of helpers for their organisation of the day.
