 Catholic Education Week

 CathEdWeek2017.jpgWelcome to Catholic Education Week. The theme for this year’s celebrations is: Sharing the Journey. Thank you to Mr Tyrrell and representatives, Zane H, Hannah W, Audrey S, Ethan S. for joining the Combined Schools Choir for the Mass at the cathedral on Sunday afternoon. We gathered together yesterday morning for our own Catholic Education Week liturgy in place of our Monday morning assembly.

 
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. When we come together in communion, as St Rita’s School community, we celebrate and promote our own journey. We all come together to be the face and hands of Jesus, using St Rita and St Augustine as a role models. We journey together with them as examples of how we work together in Christian faith, hope and love.
 
Each day at St Rita’s we promise to help each other Know More, Do More and Be More by living together to teach Gospel values and build good, positive relationships – between teachers and students, students and students and teachers and parents - making sure everyone is safe, belongs and has hope in our future.
 
There are 302 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 146,000 students and employ more than 18,500 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
 
On Wednesday, our Year 6 students will join Mrs Watson to attend the Catholic Education Week mass at Carmel College.
