Catholic Schools Inspire School Marketing Author

Saturday, May 08, 2010

Catholic schools inspire people to so much that is good. The general philosophy that they are there for all people, from all walks of life, hold these schools in such good stead.

These have been so instrumental in my upbringing that I have never left. Twelve years of schooling and seven years of tertiary education was followed by over thirty years back in these schools as an administrator and teacher. A brief foray was also spent in the archdiocesan Catholic education office. All my children were, or are being, educated in Catholic schools.

Because of this, along with the twenty years spent actively marketing Catholic schools, have inspired me to write a series of school marketing ebooks.

To have an absolute passion for these schools allows me to enjoy each day of my life in a very special and unique way.

My experience of Catholic schools is that these are places of genuine love. An educational institute that truly values each student and that student's educational and personal pathway. The integral relationship to the Jesus' story, along with living that experience out today, adds a dimension which is quite rare in today's secular educational setting.

These is a real feeling of Jesus holding each child in the palm of his hand, through the school's staff.

This means leading the child in the Catholic ways of love. Discipline, self worth and attaining the best success possible in all aspects of education, according to each child's ability, are fundamental to this love.

Catholic schools usually have places for non-Catholics, dependent on their enrolment numbers.

Graduates of Catholic schools in most cases impact in a significantly positive way on the societies in which they live.These schools should be nurtured by all societies through all forms of support, including financial.

To get a general feel of what Catholic schools offer, check out their websites, their various Catholic Education offices, open days, sporting and cultural events, etc.

The Catholic school inspires students, staff and parents alike.
