'Spirit of Catholic Education Award'

This year's theme was: ‘Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home’ as inspired by Beatitude number 4 in “The Beatitudes According to Pope Francis”.

The application and citation noted the significant number of opportunities that pupils have to explore ecology across the curriculum from our vegetable garden and pumpkin patches, to our pond clean-up, our memorial garden for past pupils at the front of Convent, our Retreats, our focus for Trócaire and the amazing work put into The Right Focus project and the Year 8 Public Speaking competition for Trócaire, our charity campaigns and the generosity of the work undertaken by the pupils completing their Béziers Award. There are too many projects and opportunities to list. Here is just one snippet:

No strangers to the Spirit of Catholic Education Awards, Rathmore Grammar School are receiving their 5th such award today and we, at the Down and Connor Catholic Schools’ Support Service commend them for their continual dedication, passion and innovation.
