Education Resources for Catholic Schools

Catholic Teaching Resources

We are delighted to share with you the wonderful Catholic Social Teaching and Humane Education Guide for Kindergarten to Eighth Grade pupils (equivalent to ages 5 to 14 in the UK), produced by William Radinson in America. The resources enable educators to teach kindness and compassion to animals as Care for Creation.

LAUDATO SI’: Good education plants seeds when we are young, and these continue to bear fruit throughout life.

The Catholic resources can be accessed here.

Interfaith Teaching Resources

The Animal Interfaith Alliance (AIA), RE Today and Veganism in Education (VinE) have worked together to produce some wonderful Interfaith teaching materials for religious education in schools. The resources will enable teachers and pupils to explore, through critical, objective and pluralistic RE lessons, questions around the moral status of animals and ethical veganism as a worldview. 

The Interfaith resources can be accessed here.

CCA, AIA and VinE Patron, Peter Egan introduces the teaching resources in this short video:
