There will be a Catholic Education Conference (CEC) from 8 am-5 pm, on March 16 at St Gabriel’s Secondary School.
The March 16 conference, organised by the Archdiocesan Commission for Catholic Schools (ACCS), is themed: Character of Catholic Schools.
The conference aims to provide a better understanding of the character of Catholic schools, and its role in Singapore today.
It also hopes to affirm and encourage all staff, both Catholic and non-Catholic, in their calling by providing a better understanding of what it means to be a Catholic school, as well as their roles in nurturing a Catholic ethos in Catholic educational institutes.
There will be discussions and talks by keynote speaker, Jesuit Fr Christopher Gleeson, a Melbourne-based Provincial Delegate for Education and Mission Formation.
“We are blessed to have Fr Gleeson at this year’s conference. He has a wealth of experience in leading schools through their formation to build a Catholic character,” said Mr Stephen Chin, chairman of the CEC organising committee.
This conference is an avenue “to encourage us to work together and inspire one another in our mission of providing Catholic education here in Singapore”, said Fr Edward Seah, ACCS’ director ad interim.
