Due to the ongoing community restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the pressures currently faced by Catholic schools to manage remote delivery of teaching and learning, Catholic Education Week (CEW) 2020 has been cancelled. This includes the official launch event scheduled to take place in the Archdiocese of Brisbane on Tuesday 28 July 2020.

The Spirit of Catholic Education Awards will continue to be run independently of CEW, as a stand-alone event for 2020. The deadline for the online submission of nominations has been extended to the end of Term 2 (Friday 26 June 2020). It is hoped these awards will highlight some of the significant work being done in school communities in this time of global crisis. The awards will be presented during Term 4.

The theme A Spirited Tomorrow will be carried forward to celebrate Catholic Education Week in 2021. Please refer to the Catholic Education Week website for further updates.
