Catholic Institute of Education

Letter to Principles, Educators and Teachers on Religious Education and Life Orientation

On the eve of the reopening of schools, Sr Kathy Gaylor wrote to principals and staff on behalf of the Catholic Board of Education. She recognised the vulnerability we feel, but spoke of the care and courage we can offer to each other – and the importance of hope. This letter is worth reading again – perhaps
as each set of learners return to school, particularly as we enter the ‘surge’ phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.
