In 2021 our schools will be celebrating 200 years of Catholic education in Australia. Today we began those celebrations at Marist Catholic College North Shore, one of our oldest schools which I first attended in 1971. It was with honour and great emotion that I was able to sit with my teachers, Sister Kathleen and Sister Margaret to talk to them about their lives and work.
Their love and commitment is continued today by teachers in our schools who follow the example of so many before them creating school communities of learning, love and safety that will set our students up for life.
I also had the chance to talk to a classmate, George Germanos, who shared his memories of Catholic education and its impact on his life.
