Catholic Schools Week 2022

19th Jan 2022

Catholic Schools Week 2022 takes place in our school from Sunday January 23rd to Sunday 30th. The theme for Catholic Schools Week this year is Catholic Schools: Living Life to the Full.

As we adapt to the many challenges and changes that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, we are given the opportunity to reflect on the things that give our lives meaning. For some, it is family, friends, community sports or hobbies. For Catholics, it is God’s love and wish for us to know and love him that gives life ultimate meaning. Jesus Christ is the revelation of this love, realised through his life, death and resurrection. In response to this, we reflect upon how Catholic schools are communities where we live life to the full. Our school fosters the holistic development of its students, promotes their wellbeing and encourages them to learn and nurture their talent and skills. Each child has the potential to change the world for the better, making it a kinder, more inclusive and more welcoming place.

This week, we celebrate the gifts and talents we have in following Jesus’ teaching. This year, we celebrate how we are called to be communities of faith and resilience, through our thoughts, words and actions. In doing so, we follow the words of Jesus in John’s Gospel: ‘I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.’

Each day of Catholic Schools Week our pupils will explore a daily theme as follows; 

Monday - Living Life to the full with God.

Tuesday - Living Life to the full Together.

Wednesday - Celebrating Being Together Again.

Thursday - Living Life in Wonder and Awe.

Friday - Living Life and Facing the Future
