Walker-Briggs said teaching is “an honourable profession anointed by God”. She supported this point highlighting 1 Corinthians 12: 27 – 31; Daniel 12:3; Romans 12:6 – 8, telling the young teachers, “It is here in the Word of God, this [teaching] is serious business.”

The orientation programme was held August 30 at the conference room of the Catholic Religious Education Development Institute (CREDI) Belmont Circular Road. Different vicariate managers discussed: ‘Catholic Ethos – Expectation of a Catholic Teacher’; ‘Assembly’, ‘Dress Code’, ‘Respect’, ‘Relationships’. The law and legal aspects of education were also discussed.
