‘Grow in Love’ the new programme for teaching religion in our Catholic Schools has been introduced in schools throughout Ireland. Here in the Diocese of Cork and Ross four In-Service Evenings have been held in Bantry, Clonakilty, Glanmire and Ballincollig. The sessions were facilitated by Aoife O’Callaghan from Riverstown N S Glanmire and Emily O’Regan from Kilbrittain NS to the principals, teachers of Junior/Sen. Infants and clergy were introduced to the mechanics of the New Curriculum.
The sessions were received with great positivity and enthusiasm. We hope that this new programme will re-vitalise and enhance the teaching of religion in our Catholic Schools.
St. John Baptist De La Salle (Patron Saint of teachers) pray for all those involved in this onerous work.
