“We need to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values...” Pope Francis
When our 7th & 8th grade students were asked to write an essay entitled “What Catholic Education Means to Me” a consistent theme emerged.
The importance of having a great education and learning about God.
“Having a relationship with God and others. If you have God by your side, anything is possible.”
“Teaches me respect and what it feels like to be respected.”
“Makes me the best version of myself possible.”
“I feel closer to God and I am able to hear what happens in the Bible.”
“The education at GSS makes me feel closer to God and makes me want to be better.”
