Catholic Schools- Good for Scotland

In 2018 we reach the centenary of the 1918 Education Act.  This was the Act that saw Catholic schools transfer from Diocesan control to State governance.  The Bishops’ Conference plans to use this centenary to celebrate the positive impact that this very important partnership between Church and State has had for Scotland.

During 2018 we will rejoice in the academic, cultural, civic and social achievements of pupils who have attended Catholic schools in the last one hundred years.  It is a chance to mark publicly the ways in which Catholic schools are not just good for Catholics, but good for Scotland.

Diocese, schools, parishes and local communities will be marking this special year in a variety of ways.

The Icon of Jesus Our Teacher was commissioned by the Scottish Catholic Education Service to mark the centenary of the 1918 Education Act.  It has been written by artist Bernadette Reilly. It will be used as the focus for our prayer, meditation, reflection and liturgical celebrations to mark the centenary.  We hope that the Icon, and all that it represents, will be a fitting legacy for the first 100 years of the partnership between Church and State in governing Catholic Schools in Scotland.
