2018-Catholic Schools Good for Scotland
In 2018 we will reach the centenary of the 1918 Education Act. This was the Act that saw Catholic schools transfer from Diocesan control to State governance. The Bishops’ Conference plans to use this centenary to celebrate the positive impact that this very important partnership between Church and State has had for Scotland.
During 2018 we will rejoice in the academic, cultural, civic and social achievements of pupils who have attended Catholic schools in the last one hundred years. It is a chance to mark publicly the ways in which Catholic schools are not just good for Catholics, but good for Scotland.
Diocese, schools, parishes and local communities will be marking this special year in a variety of ways.
SCES (sces.org.uk) will host ideas, lesson plans, prayer materials and details of the events happening across the country.
