Reflections on a Catholic education

By Jenny Mertes

Grade 6

My Catholic education means that we can pray and learn and talk about God.

In our school, we have the opportunity to have smaller classes and we get close attention from the teachers.

Catholic education is a big part of my life. I have been attending Catholic schools since I was in Pre-K 4.

Catholic education has taught me to treat people like I am in their place and to help people in any way possible.

I can develop more friendships because we are small and have more chances to get to know each other.

Also, we do not have much bullying because we treat people the way we want to be treated.

In our Catholic school, we wear uniforms so everyone looks the same, and no one picks on you. We also don’t have to worry about picking out clothes to wear.

We have more classes and subjects each day than some other schools. We have nine classes a day.

In our school we do caring things like making blankets to give people in nursing homes and collecting money and items for the poor.

Catholic education is important because it gives students the tools necessary to have a successful future.

I hope more Catholic schools will spread across the world so everyone can have the chance to be in a school like this one. I am always going to be in Catholic schools because I love them so much.
