Catholic Schools Good for Scotland – a new documentary


If you haven’t already seen it then now is the time to kick back, grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy a celebration of Catholic schools in Scotland!


The documentary, commissioned by the Scottish Catholic Education Service and produced by Sancta Familia Media, celebrates 100 years since the passing of the Education (Scotland) Act 1918 when Catholic schools became part of the state system of education.


The film features First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Ruth Davidson MSP, Richard Leonard MSP, Kieran Tierney of Celtic FC, and Mark Millar MBE of comic book fame, and many others. Teachers and pupils from all across Scotland talk about their positive experience of Catholic schools and all eight bishops of Scotland reveal how Catholic education impacted on their lives.


It makes for fantastic viewing.


The film covers three key themes:

1. The History of the Education Scotland Act 1918

2. The memories of those who attended Catholic schools.

3. The current crop of Catholic students & looking towards the future.
