Leadership & Personal Development NEW

“A brilliant piece of focused professional scholarship. It brings together great clarity on the subject of ‘Gospel values’, supported by in-depth biblical and theological knowledge and creative, practical suggestions for translating ideas into Gospel reality in our schools.” Professor Gerald Grace, KSG, KHS, St Mary’s Catholic University, London

Gospel Values for Catholic Schools Raymond Friel

Raymond Friel brings his vast experience of Catholic educational leadership to bear in addressing the centrality of Gospel values in the current climate, in which the very existence of schools with a religious character, which predate state schools, is increasingly being challenged. As the title suggests, Friel’s account is rooted firmly in the Gospels and encompasses a coherent narrative of the significance of Gospel values for the Catholic school in general and its leadership in particular.

“A serious contender to be a prescribed textbook in the formation of Catholic teachers and, most certainly, for those in or aspiring to be leaders of our schools.” Willie Slavin Networking Magazine

Choosing a Catholic School Sr Judith Russi SSMN

Catholic schools have an impressive reputation for providing both inspiring environments and delivering academic excellence. It is hardly surprising therefore that they are amongst the most consistently soughtafter schools in terms of pupil intake each year. With such an important far-reaching choice to be made by parents (and pupils) it has never been more important to have clear, informative and reflective guidance on hand to help you make the best decision possible. Choosing a Catholic School will help guide your decision-making at every step. Whether you are a parent looking for authoritative and impartial advice in selecting a school and the application process, or a Catholic school looking for a practical resource to help guide parents during the application and admissions period for the next intake, this book will prove an invaluable and thoughtprovoking first port-of-call.

It is a practical resource which contains useful information to help you navigate your way around the Bible and understand the church year, with a glossary of terms.

YOUR DIARY NEW

This new diary for primary schools is designed to help children develop strong Christian values. For each week of the school year there is a double-page spread. On one side there is a weekly diary and on the other a Christian theme is explained in age-appropriate language with fun, engaging activities. Themes such as respect, humility, reverence and thankfulness are explained by using either a value or a modern tale, and faith-building facts, puzzles, quizzes and colouringin motivate the children to think about how the value can impact on their lives and helps them to make good choices. The major festivals in other religions are highlighted and when possible, there is an explanation or story to describe what a non-Christian child (possibly a classmate) might be celebrating. If this diary is used daily as a channel of communication between parents, carers and the school it will help those families that are not Christian come to understand the special mission of a church school – to grow and educate each child emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually.

The Survival Guide for Young Catholics John Chater

Do you wonder why, as a Catholic, you do some of the things that you do? Have you ever found yourself unable to answer basic questions about what you believe and why you believe it? The Survival Guide for Young Catholics will tell you a bunch of stuff that you might already know and a lot more that you probably don’t. You won’t get long, boring answers. Instead you will get quick-fire, straight up answers that any parent or pope would be proud to hear. So prepare for an overview of the Catholic faith that is sure to leave you a little smarter, a lot more confident and the envy of your fellow Catholics. Marriage: when two become one While we have seen that the Church places great importance on marriage, fewer people than ever before are choosing to “get wed” – with many couples opting to cohabit instead. So, is marriage still relevant?

It should be obvious by now that the Catholic concept of marriage involves more than simply the wedding within the church, although, like everyone else, Catholics love a good wedding. However, what makes a marriage Christian is not a good knees-up following the ceremony, but a personal relationship of life-giving love in which two people make the love of Christ present to each other, and one in which the partners become a sign of love of Christ to those around them. This is a high ideal, a sacred ideal. And it’s because of this that the Church supports and actively promotes marriage. In addition, marriage provides

Why do Catholics have to get married in church? When Catholics marry they believe that God ratifies their union. This is expressed during the wedding ceremony, in the words: “What God has joined together, let no man put asunder.” Catholics see marriage as something that God is involved in: that is why the wedding takes place in church.

many benefits, one of which is stability. This is important because a stable family provides the best environment in which to bring up children, giving them the firm grounding and confidence they need to learn and grow. It is also the best environment for the husband and wife to grow together, and for their love to deepen as the years pass.

Welcome

Welcome to the new Education catalogue from RP Education, including our key publications and resources designed to help your school strive for success. Highlights include the new book from bestselling author Raymond Friel, Gospel Values for Catholic Schools. We’ve received some glowing reviews and we believe this will become an essential text for teachers and aspiring leaders of Catholic schools. Key resources such as our unique primary homework diaries and secondary school planners have helped many schools across the country. With editions for both Catholic and other faith schools these diaries will reinforce the religious identity of your school, helping your students to put their faith into practice. We offer customisation and a free design service, so you can create your own diary to suit the needs of your school. See pages 4 and 10 for more information. Our customer research tells us that making space for calm moments of reflection and meditation is increasingly necessary in schools, so don’t forget our prayer and meditation resources on pages 16-17. This is just a flavour of our educational resources for faith schools. Please visit our website for the full range or speak to our friendly customer care team. Happy browsing, Udish Dissanayake MSc, BA Hons Education Advisor

Colour in Peace postcards are a collection of popular images from the colouring book for readers to colour in and send to their friends and family. Code: 1040091 Price: £7.99 ISBN: 9780745980133

Colour in Hope

This reflective journey through colouring explores the meaning of hope through a series of patterns and designed illustrations, plus seven different quotes from writers, thinkers, saints and the Bible. Each section starts with a theme, introduced by a quote. The following seven pages explore this theme through different artwork pieces.
