Guidelines on the Inclusion of Students of Other Faiths in Catholic Secondary Schools (http://www.schoolethos.ie/webfm_send/718)
These guidelines arise out of an acknowledgement that the make-up of the Catholic school population in Ireland has changed considerably. Growing secularism and multiculturalism mean that Catholic schools often include among their pupils students of other faith traditions and of no faith tradition. Many Catholic schools are feeling challenged by the presence of different faiths in their school community. They are seeking guidance on matters relating to issues such as Religious Education, the celebration of the liturgical year and the use of religious symbols.
