End of term message from Dr Debra Sayce
05 April 2022
Importantly, Catholic Education WA has continued to hold health and safety as central to all we do. We have seen the rollout of our revolutionary COVID App, which is changing the way positive COVID cases are being reported in our schools.
CEWA has also invested more than $8 million in our COVID response, funding rapid antigen tests (RAT), air purifiers and carbon dioxide monitors for every school in our system. We look forward to an easing of restrictions, including the onerous reporting measures, in Term 2.
As the Federal election approaches, CEWA will continue our public engagement campaign, Building A Brighter WA, to showcase the significant social and economic contribution Catholic education and individual schools make in WA.
Once again, thank you all for your efforts during Term 1, they have truly made a difference.
I wish you a joyous Easter and an enjoyable break that will no doubt serve as an opportunity to connect with family and loved ones, as much as we can within pandemic constraints.
I conclude with the recent focus Pope Francis presented the world with the consecration of Ukraine and Russia.
His Holiness stated: “The vicious war that has overtaken so many people, and caused suffering to all, has made each of us fearful and anxious”.
“Human reassurance is not enough. We need the closeness of God and the certainty of his forgiveness, which alone eliminates evil, disarms resentment, and restores peace to our hearts. Let us return to God and to his forgiveness.”
