Catholic Schools Week will take place from the 23rdJanuary to the 30th January 2022.
Last year the focus was on resilience, on reconnecting and re- engaging students. This year it is on living our lives with the hope of a brighter tomorrow as we reach out to the community.
Every Catholic School fosters the holistic development of its students, promotes their wellbeing, and encourages them to learn and nurture their talents and skills. Every child can make a difference and help the world to be a kinder and welcoming place.
As a Faith Community all are asked to reflect and gain encouragement from the words of Jesus: “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full.”
The document underpinning this year’s Catholic Schools Week is Vision 08: A Vision of Catholic Education in Ireland which is a pastoral letter from the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. We will quote from this document for our “Thoughts for the Day” to show how connected our bishops are to each Catholic school in Ireland. Again, this year, resources for Catholic Schools Week will be available online at www.catholicschools.ie
