The Jubilarian concept has a rich tradition in Catholic life in celebrating silver and golden anniversaries of ordinations, professions, ministry and service in the Church's missionary activities.
The Diocese of Sandhurst extends this laudatory practice to teachers and ancillary staff in the schools within the Diocese. The promotion of Jubilarians acknowledges the years of service of these dedicated and long serving people.
The Year of the Great Jubilee (2000) provided inspiration to commence this practice for all staff in our schools.
The occasions are opportunities to promote teaching and Catholic education through telling the life and work of great people in the local community.
The Jubilarian celebrations are sponsored by the SSEB in collaboration with schools and the Catholic Education Office.
