Catholic education supports students becoming more informed about the world and their role in its future. These matters are important to all young people and many Catholic schools have discussions with their students about global issues in a supervised school setting.

Social justice initiatives give schools the chance to take action and empower young people to be part of a solution.

There’s no better way for students to express the principles of Catholic social teaching than to stand together with their peers and teachers at school in support of those most in need.

Students are encouraged to work closely with their local parish, community groups, support local charities and participate in outreach or immersion experiences for the benefit of the whole community and the student’s personal development.
