Faith in the Future

Reflecting on our past with Faith in the Future

In 2021, we reflect and give thanks for the contributions of those who have gone before us in Catholic education, celebrating 50 Years Together as the Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) system. Nationally we also commemorate the rich 200-year history of Catholic education in Australia.

The Faith in the Future Award category recognises, celebrates and leverages the contributions of the laity and religious orders and their charisms in witnessing to the mission of Catholic education and its faith story.

This award will recognise an outstanding Faith in the Future project or initiative developed by a Catholic school in Western Australia (one Primary and one Secondary).
