Thursday’s Thought for the Day:
‘Catholic Schools seek to reflect a distinctive vision of life and a corresponding philosophy of education.’
(Vision 08: A Vision of Catholic Education in Ireland)

‘For so many marvels I thank you; a wonder am I, and all your works are wonders.’ (Psalm 139)

Sometimes, if we’re fortunate, we can see great and amazing wonders outside of ourselves – in nature, in people, in the arts.
But we can forget the wonder within ourselves.
We may fall into the trap of thinking little of ourselves; we may have low self-esteem.
This can happen because we believe, rightly or wrongly, that others think little of us.
However, the deep personal love God has for us surpasses all this.
But it can be a struggle to believe such wonderful things about ourselves without getting big-headed or arrogant about it, as some do.
So, the challenge is to get the balance right.
Will we rise to that challenge?
Will our Catholic school community encourage us and support us to rise to that challenge?

St Vincent’s Castleknock College has over 180 years’ experience of excellence in boys’ education. A Christian school in the Catholic tradition, we place faith, respect for fellow students and for teachers, care for the poor and vulnerable, and growth of self-worth through active participation as central to the school’s spirit and ethos. In recent years, the college has been ranked joint first in the list of the best schools in Ireland with 100% of our graduates going on to third level education. This is all down to enthusiastic teachers, hardworking students and supportive parents.
