A number of resources are available to help schools and parishes celebrate Catholic Education Week in Melbourne. Click on the headings below.
A series of videos have been developed to celebrate the great work of over 1500 parent volunteers in School Advisory Councils across the Archdiocese of Melbourne. With an introduction by the Episcopal Vicar for Catholic Schools, these four videos are an encapsulation of what some priests, principals and parent members of School Advisory Councils believe it means to be part of a Catholic school. Focusing on the three themes, charism, encounter and working together in mission, these short pericopes are representative of the passion and goodness of those who work together in our schools to bring about the realization of the mission of Jesus.
The following Religious Education classroom resources are designed to engage students with the theme of Catholic Education Week 2022, ‘The Way of the Gospel’. As such, teachers can move through the different components without completing all activities listed in each section. These activities are not intended to replace school-based, planned units.
These resources encourage connection between Catholic schools and parishes. Schools are invited to promote Catholic Education Week within their parish communities.
