On behalf of the Board and staff of the New Zealand Catholic Education Office we would like to thank everyone who joined us in Wellington last week, for the 2024 Catholic Education Convention.

It was a wonderful occasion to meet, face to face, with over 700 Catholic educators, Bishops, priests, school trustees and a range of others associated with our national Catholic education system.

The Convention theme, Tūhono Whakapono: Together, one faith community, was evident in every speaker, presenter, and attendee, a delight to see.

We trust you enjoyed your time in Te Whanganui-a-Tara | Wellington and look forward to welcoming you to the next one.

Ngā mihi nui
