Catholic Schools' Week

follow us on Facebook! follow us on Twitter! follow us on Instagram!


Dear Boys, Parents and Staff

Catholic Schools throughout the Archdiocese of Johannesburg are celebrating Catholic Schools Week. The week of celebrations commenced on Sunday, 21 May when pupils proudly wore their school uniforms and participated in their respective parish Masses. Past and present boys from St Benedict's participate in Masses in both the Edenvale and Malvern Parishes and we thank the boys who have volunteered for this initiative.

This week's planned activities reaffirm our identity and celebrate that which makes St Benedict's a unique and special place of education.

Part of our celebrations at St Benedict's is a range of Outreach drives. I would like to encourage our parents to assist our boys in supporting these initiatives enthusiastically as we express our solidarity with those in our community who are not as privileged as we are.

College Initiative - Any non-perishable food items and (second-hand) shoes/takkies

I include below, for your reference, a list of links to a series of pamphlets which were published by the Ethos Committee of the Catholic Schools Board a few years ago. These are a very helpful resource for understanding some of the characteristics of a Catholic School.

The History and Rationale of Catholic Schools
The Distinctive Character of A Catholic School
Religious Education in Catholic Schools
Ethos and Pastoral Care
The Mass
The Eucharist
Catholics and Mary
Gospels Values
Principles of Catholic Social Teaching
Governance of Catholic Schools
We wish all a very blessed week of celebrations and thank each boy, each staff member and each parent for making St Benedict's such a blessed school.
