There is a large body of research that shows the benefit of high-quality early learning and care experiences for children in their first 1,000 days of life, and in the years prior to school.
This free initiative of the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) aims to reduce the financial burden on families impacted by the effects of rising living costs and inflation.
“We are committed to ensuring our schools are accessible for all families seeking a Catholic education for their children, as well as focusing on improving educational and wellbeing outcomes for every student in our schools,” says Dr Neil McGoran, Director, Catholic Education South Australia.
Catholic schools are open to students from all backgrounds, faith traditions and spiritual journeys, and offer a range of schooling opportunities. These include single-gender and co-educational schooling, various specialist teaching areas and pathways to secondary education.
Through a commitment to educational excellence, Catholic schools provide quality learning in a Catholic context, instilling values, that will last well beyond the schooling experience.
What makes a Catholic school different?
Catholic schools work in partnership with families to educate and nurture the whole person, helping them to be thriving, capable learners as well as extraordinary human beings. We instil values that last well beyond the schooling experience, they’re ingrained for life. The strength of our schools lies in our teachers who support and develop young people academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
If your child turns 5 before October 31 2023, it’s not too late to tour a local Catholic school and enrol to start school in Term 3.
