“Catholic Education South Australia is an educational sector that is committed to providing excellence for every child and young person whose learning and education is entrusted to our care.

“We want every student to experience success according to their unique characteristics and talent,” Catholic Education South Australia Director Dr Neil McGoran said.

“Catholic schools believe in teaching more than the curriculum.

“They instil values that last well beyond the schooling experience, they’re ingrained for life.

“Catholic Schools Open Week is an opportunity for any parent considering a Catholic education for their child to meet their local Catholic school and discover why Catholic education is a choice worth making.”

There are over 100 tours and event happening across the state.
