Local celebrations

Our 1,755 Catholic schools across Australia are distinct and diverse. From metropolitan cities to rural, regional and remote parts of Australia, our schools meet the individual needs of their students differently, but with the same shared mission of an excellent, faith-based education. 

On our Resources page there are a list of suggested activities so diocesan and school communities can celebrate the Bicentenary of Catholic education in their own distinct ways.
