On 16th March 2010, the Queen confirmed the State visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Scotland and England from 16th to 19th September 2010. The Papal Visit is an historic event for Britain and all those involved in Catholic Education.
Further details about the visit will be released in coming weeks. For now it appears that there may be a number of ways in which young people in schools and parishes might be able to prepare for, and participate in, the various events in Scotland and England during these four days in September. We shall keep schools informed of these opportunities as information comes to us. We also hope to provide some resources for use in schools.
PowerPoint presentations for schools
To help you to start on your preparations, we are providing, courtesy of the Cathoic Education Service of England & Wales, two PowerPoint presentations for primary and secondary schools. We hope that these will be of use in assemblies and/or class lessons and that they may stimulate future activity in schools and parishes. NB These may take a little time to download to your own computer.
