Galloway pupils celebrate icon

Children across the Diocese of Galloway joined in celebrating SCES’ new centenary icon

Pupils from a number of Galloway primary schools joined Bishop William Nolan at St John’s Primary in Ayr last week, as an icon created to mark the centenary of state Catholic schools in Scotland began its tour of all eight Scottish dioceses.

Barbara Coupar, director of the Scottish Catholic Education Service, said: “From Catholic Education Week at the end of January 2018, through to St Andrew’s Day on November 30, we will be marking the centenary of the Education (Scotland) Act and celebrating the ongoing, successful partnership between the Church and government through our Catholic schools.’
