Catholic Schools Week 2014 will begin on Sunday 26 January and will conclude on 1 February. The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year is ‘Catholic Schools – places of faith and learning’. This year’s theme was chosen to highlight that all learning takes place in a values context. Catholic Schools Week is an occasion to celebrate the work and achievement of Catholic Schools in Ireland, north and south. Resources have been provided to all primary and post-primary schools to assist with the celebration of CSW.
Catholic education tradition is built on respect for faith and reason, which is the most important principle underpinning such education today. This helps to explain why Catholic schools are so popular and respected throughout the world,
There is no contradiction between being a fully educated person and a committed Christian.
