Catholic Education Magazine, April 2017

By Kelsay Correa | April 03, 2017

We have decided to make Catholic Education more practical and ‘hands on’. Starting with this edition, we’ll be including ideas for putting ethos into practice, suggestions for inter-religious dialogue, activities for exploring environmental issues and resources for using in the classroom. Be sure to make lots of copies for yourself and other staff members. Catholic Education be emailed straight to your inbox. Just drop me a line at kelsay@cie.org.za and I’ll be sure to email you a copy. You may then send it on to all your staff and teachers at other schools!

We are proud to introduce the Delta Environmental Centre (DEC) in this edition of Catholic Education. DEC offers and facilitates a wide range of hands on, practical programmes that align and support the current South African school curriculum. They have agreed to contribute editorial content on a regular basis which will support Social Sciences educators in all grades.

We have also put together a team of specialists including a speech and hearing specialist, an educational psychologist, an audiologist and a special needs educator who will contribute practical tips and suggestions for assisting learners in future editions.

CIE has partnered with the Departments of Basic Education and Health to deliver the Integrated Schools Health Programme. In 2016, CIE staff visited 15 primary schools to administer deworming medication to 5 748 learners. We have published lots of crucial information on deworming to inform educators and parents about the importance of deworming.

Enjoy reading and please let us know what you think!
