Social Justice Week in schools 2014

Social Justice Week in 2014 focussed on Catholic social teaching. You can use our resources filter page to download resources.

You and your students are invited to become more familiar with the principles of Catholic social teaching (CST) through our 2014 Social Justice Week materials, which you can download below. It is hoped that students will learn to recognise when these principles are at work, and will be inspired to put them into practice themselves using the See, Judge and Act framework.

The Teachers’ pack has a beautiful picture book (Learning to recognise CST in action Social Justice Week book for Yr 1-6) for primary children that introduces five CST principles and provides examples of New Zealanders living them out. This book provides the catalyst for discussion around the values that guide our actions. Children can be encouraged to create their own similar book about people at school.

Yr 7-10 students received a card game to play in order to build an understanding of CST. 

There are posters, prayer booklets and staff formation opportunities with a booklet containing an inservice meeting and a staff liturgy on CST.

Everyone can access seven videos, with suggestions as to how students can respond to the ideas in these resources.
