How to Celebrate World Catholic Education Day in your School
May 9, 2013 Marks World Catholic Education Day
On May 9th, Catholic education will be celebrated globally and the Canadian Catholic School Trustees’ Association encourages Canadian Catholic Schools to take part.
World Catholic Education Day is a time for Catholics around the world to take a moment to pause, reflect and pray on the gift that is Catholic education.
With this year’s theme marked as You Will be My Witness, the day is a chance to reflect on how Catholic education has served parents and their children in most nations throughout the world for centuries.
CCSTA’s mandate is to promote excellence in Catholic education across Canada. Representing 80 school boards, the organization puts the spotlight on how Catholic education has helped define Canadian society, serving the nation through faith-based leading and learning. CCSTA also works hard to ensure Catholic education remains attainable for children across the country by offering the Endowment Fund and Toonies for Tuition program.
How can you, as an educator, do this?
CCSTA offers a few ideas on how to celebrate WCED in your school:
As well, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association has generously offered CCSTA to promote WCED and suggest utilizing OCSTA resources from Catholic Education Week. OCSTA has a number of helpful resources to help celebrate Catholic education in Canada.
Visit OCSTA’s website for these resources: http://ocsta.on.ca/CatholicEducationWeek.aspx
We celebrate this year’s WCED on May 9, 2013; every day through our teaching and learning we proclaim God's word as help to form and transform the world.
