Catholic students celebrate
The impact of Catholic Education in the Coffs Harbour area was evident yesterday, when more than 2200 students and 200 staff gathered at John Paul College to celebrate the start of Catholic Schools' Week. In his liturgy, Father John Casey from Mary Help fo Christians, Sawtell, urged the region's Catholic students and teachers to take great pride in their uniqueness of their education. The mass was followed by a full day of celebrations and activities ranging from inter-school sport and visits by kindergarten classes to John Paul College's school farm. Throughout the week the schools will continue their celebrations at their local level showcasing their excellent resources and learning environments.
