Depute headteachers tackle Faith in Action

Annual conference will feature musical talents of Catholic school children

The Catholic depute headteachers of Scotland are holding their annual conference at the Conforti Institute, Coatbridge on Friday.

The theme of the conference is Faith in Action and will be chaired by Laurie Byrne, headteacher of St Maurice’s High School, Cumbernauld, and will feature a talk from Tony Begley, former senior depute head at Holyrood Secondary School, Glasgow, who is now education coordinator for Mary’s Meals charity.

Music at the conference’s Mass will be provided by pupils from Taylor High School, Motherwell, who also sang at the Papal Mass at Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, on September 16.

Further information on the conference, including booking details can be found by visiting the website of the Scottish Catholic Education Service’s website at:
