We are a group of Catholic primary school teachers in Ireland who meet quarterly to discuss and support one another in the teaching of the Catholic faith in our schools. We also create and send out a free monthly Email Bulletin to over 1600 primary school teachers with ideas, resources and supports for teaching religion in our schools. The Association of Catholic Teachers is a voice for Catholic education in Ireland today.
We are organising a retreat for primary school teachers from 5th-7th April 2019 in Glencomeragh, Co. Tipperary. See here for more details.
Our logo has the letters ACT in Celtic writing, symbolising our Irish heritage. The picture shows an adult teacher pointing towards a Christian cross, the yellow colour symbolising the risen Christ. The child is also pointing towards the cross. The teacher is the guide towards Christ and the child is led and comes to know God through the teacher’s example.
