Catholic Education Week will be celebrated across Queensland from 28 July – 3rd August this year. Catholic Education Week provides an opportunity for all Catholic education communities around Queensland to celebrate and promote the distinctive mission of Catholic schooling.
The theme this year is 'Many Voices, One Spirit.' This theme has been chosen for its promotion and support of inclusiveness. The 'Many Voices' represent those of students, teachers, families, communities, parish, social services and government within all five dioceses in Queensland and include students of all educational ages (kindergarten to university) and beliefs. 'One Spirit' will be interpreted differently by different audiences and could include for example: faith, the Holy Spirit, charisms, or school spirit, team spirit, parish spirit, family spirit. The theme brings feelings of energy, enthusiasm, love, joy, values, relationships, togetherness, learning, unity and belonging – all ideals relevant to Catholic schools in Queensland.
There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. 1 CORINTHIANS 14:10
