The Catholic Church in Scotland encourages schools, parishes and other agencies to work closely together in order to celebrate the distinctive purpose of Catholic education during one particular week each year. The purpose of Catholic Education Week is to highlight the significance of education, not only for young people but for society as a whole. Students, parents, teachers and others are asked to reflect on their own roles in the education process - at home, in school, in the local parish and in other educational settings.
The theme of this year's Education Week is "Opening Hearts and Minds to God". The Senior Management Team, Guidance and RE staff will be reading at various services throughout the Diocese. They will also be joined by staff from our Cluster schools.
The Fisherman's Mission
Following on from the success of our Christmas Food Collection which helped support many people at the Fisherman’s Mission in Troon, we have been asked to support their annual coffee morning which will be held in the Walker Hall in Troon on the 9th February from 10am to 12 noon. We are appealing for donations of home baking which will be sold at the coffee morning to support the mission.
Just like the Christmas Food Collection we would like everyone in the school to get involved. Any donations of home baking can be handed in to Mrs McIntosh in RE on the 7th February. However, if home baking isn’t your thing then please feel free to come along to the coffee morning and show your support.
