Students observe Catholic Schools Week
Students from St. Theresa School in Malaeloa and Marist St. Francis Elementary School in Lepua singing hymns at Sunday’s church opening at Fatu-o-Aiga for the Catholic Schools Week in the territory which closes on Friday. This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Academics. Service.”
The theme focuses on three priorities that Catholic schools establish that make them stand out from other educational institutions, according to Catholic school officials.
The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2012 is January 29 to February 5. Schools typically celebrate Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open houses and activities for students, families, parishioners and the community at large.
