Catholic Education Week 2019

Catholic Schools show ‘‘Many Voices, One Spirit” during

Catholic Education Week


Students and teachers from St Kieran’s Primary school and Sacred Heart Primary School joined together on Friday, 2 August to celebrate Catholic Education Week 2019.

St Kieran’s Principal Mr Ben Gray said that this annual event promotes the special ethos of Catholic schools and highlights 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 school 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” Mr Gray said.

“The theme for this year’s celebration was “Many Voices.  One Spirit” and at St Kieran’s we hosted a number of fun activities that enabled our students, staff, friends and families to come together to celebrate the spirit of our school community.

Catholic Education Week was celebrated across Queensland from 28 July to 3 August.

There are 306 Catholic schools in Queensland that educate around 149,000 students and employ more than 20,000 teachers and staff, and most will celebrate Catholic Education Week in some way.
