A selection of children, along with Mrs O’Neill, Miss Gray and Sr Frances attended a mass in Banbridge for the celebration of Catholic Schools Week. The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year was Celebrating the Work of our Local Catholic Schools. As Irish society changes, it is important that we reflect on the unique contribution of Catholic schools to our collective goal of education. Each Catholic school shares an ethos that is inclusive, welcoming and vibrant. This means that we work towards helping each child, irrespective of background, ethnicity or creed, reach their full potential academically, spiritually and socially. To be in the likeness and image of God means that we have the capacity to truly care for ourselves, each other and the environment around us.
