Who does this aim to serve?
This event has been organised in response to requests from teachers and school leaders (Primary and Post-Primary) who draw upon their own spiritualities in the course of teaching / exercising leadership.

It seeks to honour four intentions:
(i) to invoke God’s blessing on the year ahead
(ii) to support a time of reflection
(iii) to provide an experience of fellowship for teachers and school leaders who find
that teaching / leading a school community is a key dimension of their  vocation
(iv) to offer spiritual nourishment  from the riches of Christianity.

Open to:
All  Teachers and School Leaders (Primary & Post-Primary for whom
faith and being an educator / facilitator of learning-teaching are integrally linked
in their own person.
