Catholic Education Week 2021Catholic Education Week provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the strengths and achievements of our 38 Catholic schools as well as the people who contribute to Catholic Education Tasmania’s ongoing success.

Our theme for 2021 is ‘Faith in the Future’ reflecting our mission to form students in their faith, and to provide an education that enables our students to make a meaningful contribution to the world. 

Catholic education has supported Tasmanian families for nearly 200 years. We are proud to be partners in Tasmania’s future: partners with governments, families and Church communities in achieving shared educational goals for young Tasmanians.

Recognising staff and supporters of Catholic Education Tasmania

Our 38 Catholic schools across Tasmania teach that a life lived in the love of God and in the Christian service of others has purpose and meaning.

It is this service of others from staff and supporters of Catholic Education Tasmania that we recognise and celebrate during Catholic Education Week. Awards are presented to those within our community who have made a significant contribution to Catholic Education Tasmania.

We celebrate, too, those within our community who have dedicated their careers to supporting students in Catholic education across Australia through our 25 Years of Service Awards.

Chair of the Catholic Education Commission Tasmania, Hon. Michael Polley AM, is pleased to announce the recipients of CECT Recognition Awards and 25 Years of Service Awards for 2021!
