Catholic Education Week 2017 was launched by the Rt. Rev. Brian McGee, Bishop of Argyll & the Isles when he visited St Columba’s Primary School in Oban. SCES Director Barbara Coupar, together with Parish Priest Mgr James MacNeil, joined pupils, teachers, parents and parishioners for this lovely celebration.
For Catholic Education Week 2017, resources have been provided to support schools and parishes to address the theme: “Developing as a Community of Faith and Learning”. While these can be used throughout Catholic Education Week itself, many can be used at other times throughout the school year, leading to a deeper understanding of the theme.
NB. Catholic Education Week runs from 12th to 18th February 2017. Schools & parishes may rearrange their celebrations to fit with local school holidays.
