Synod Schools Resources

Our Catholic Schools are a huge part in the life and mission of the Archdiocese and it is vital that the voices of students, staff, and the wider schools communities are heard as the we discern the way forward. These resources have been designed to support schools in the task of reflecting on our Themes and submitting their Proposals for Action.
