Catholic Schools Week 2018 28th January – 4th February

When Bishop Fintan Monahan, Bishop of Killaloe, launched Catholic Schools week he highlighted the link between the upcoming World Meeting of Families which takes place in Dublin in August this year and the theme of CSW2018 which is ‘Catholic Schools: Called to be a Family of Families’. Bishop Monahan underlined the links between Catholic Schools, the home, the parish and the world. He spoke of ‘that extra substance called ethos that appeals to the whole person – mind, body and spirit – that is an integral part of our Catholic Schools’. ‘Catholic Schools have that selfless motivation and drive to go the extra mile. Catholic Education is inclusive, open to all and promotes the common good,’ Bishop Monahan said, encouraging schools to be ‘families of faith, hope, love and joy’.
We hope our students, staff and families enjoy the different events our schools have organised this week.
