Seeking The True, The Beautiful And The Good
Catholic Schools Week 2019 will be celebrated from Sunday, 3rd March to Saturday, 9th March, and offers prospective parents the opportunity to visit their local Catholic School and sample what a Catholic School Education can offer their child.
Schools will offer tours and activities during the week and families will have an opportunity to meet the principal and teaching staff. The theme this year for the Wilcannia-Forbes Diocese is Seeking the True, the Beautiful and the Good.
