Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week gives us the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution that our Catholic primary and post-primary schools make not just to Irish society, but to the mission of the Church. Last year marked a very successful beginning of an all-Ireland celebration of Catholic Schools Week and we hope this year to build on that foundation and continue to create a space where we can proudly articulate and celebrate our ethos and identity.

This year the theme for the week is ‘Catholic Schools – A Light for Every Generation’. 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 contribute through their work in establishing schools and places of education.
