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.
