Events and awards
Recognition of the outstanding contributions people make to Catholic Education are a part of our culture. The following awards programs are some of the ways we recognise our people.
Spirit of Catholic Education Awards
These awards aim to recognise outstanding contributions by individuals within the Catholic education community and are presented annually as part of Catholic Education Week (CEW) celebrations.
Nominations are also invited for the Aunty Joan Hendriks Spirit of Catholic Education Reconciliation Award. This award, initiated in 2012, recognises an outstanding contribution to Reconciliation by a member of a Queensland Catholic education community. Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of Catholic education communities are encouraged to nominate for this award.
The awards are proudly supported by the Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund (ACSRF) and the Australian Catholic University (ACU), the sponsors of Catholic Education Week.
Nominations for these awards are closed for 2018. For more information head to http://www.catholiceducationweek.com.au/awards
Long Service Awards
During Catholic Education Week members of the Catholic education community who have given 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years or longer service to Catholic Education are recognised. This service includes their contribution in the Diocese of Toowoomba and in any other Catholic Diocese.
