Catholic Education Week
Celebrated annually in week 3 of term 3, Catholic Education Week is an opportunity for all 307 Catholic schools in Queensland to celebrate and promote their distinctive mission and ethos.
Catholic education strives to make a difference in the lives of those in our schools and in the wider community by challenging young people to live out the message of Jesus and to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society.
Due to the ongoing community restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, official events associated with Catholic Education Week 2020 have been cancelled. This includes the official launch event in the Archdiocese of Brisbane.
The Spirit of Catholic Education Awards 2020 will be presented locally in dioceses. Please refer to the Awards page for further information.
For schools who will be acknowledging Catholic Education Week in Week 3 of Term 3, there are resources available to assist with celebrating 175 years of Catholic Education in Queensland on the Resources page of this website.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
The theme for celebrations in 2021 is 175 Years – A Spirited Tomorrow.

Catholic Education Week is proudly supported by:
We are privileged to support Catholic education and have done so for more than 30 years. Catholic schools play a vital role in educating young Australians, helping students develop the skills to achieve their full potential. This couldn’t be done without the excellent guidance and support provided by dedicated teachers and staff.
We’re proud to support your needs, providing strong investment growth, diverse financial advice and insurance that can provide peace of mind as you plan for your future.
Providing our members with value starts with our dedication to your needs. We limit our fees to what it costs to operate the fund and return profits to members or use them to develop innovative new ways to grow your savings. And we offer many ways to get answers to questions, including our excellent member services team.
A fund you can trust
Everything we do is guided by the values we share with the Catholic Church. By taking the environmental and social implications of our investments into account, we can provide support for your future and peace of mind that your money is doing good.
For more information about us, our services and how we can work together to support the education community, or to arrange for us to visit your school and talk with staff, please call your Qld Regional Managers Paul Lynch or Zilla Lyons on 1300 658 776, or visit
At ACU we pride ourselves on offering a welcoming environment for everyone – irrespective of their socio-cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs or aspirations. At the same time, we are a university committed to standing for something clear. We are the university for people who look beneath the surface, and are stronger than external expectations and superficial measures of success. We stand up for people in need and causes that matter.
We’re a publicly-funded university which has grown rapidly over the past few years. The world is our campus, and we put our students and staff at the centre of a vibrant global network of scholars, partnerships and opportunities. ACU has seven campuses around Australia – in Brisbane, North Sydney, Strathfield, Canberra, Ballarat, Melbourne and Adelaide – and we’ve recently opened a campus in Rome, Italy.
We’re closely integrated into our communities and industries, working with them to answer the big questions, and to create tangible results. From hospitals, to schools and any number of far-flung places, our students and staff have always rolled up their sleeves to be fully engaged in the real world. All our students enjoy extensive opportunities for practical placements, and community engagement is a core part of their university experience. When they graduate, our students are ready to work.
ACU offers programs in allied health, arts, business and commerce, education and teaching, exercise science, health, law, nursing and midwifery, paramedicine, philosophy, psychology and counselling, science, social work, and theology.
Along with significant student growth in recent years, we’ve begun to compete more intensely through our research output. ACU research programs tackle enduring and pressing issues in society, in Australia, and around the world.
At ACU, it’s education, but with a bigger purpose.
At CCI, we’ve delivered certainty for the Catholic community for over 100 years.
From insurance to managing risk and growing wealth, we continue to address risks and volatilities for our clients, so we can provide even better products and services.
By being forward thinking we’re helping organisations to thrive and ensuring the Catholic community can continue to rely on us for another hundred years.
