Over 70% of schools in the Diocese of Parramatta submitted entries in the Catholic Schools Week Video Competition 'what makes our Catholic Schools great?'
Six entries from the Parramatta Diocese were recognised with awards:

Executive Director of Schools, Greg Whitby, said he was pleased that so many school groups and individuals took the time to imaginatively express their insights about what makes their school great.
'I was delighted to learn that a group video by students from Our Lady of the Angels Primary, Rouse Hill won the popular vote and the runner up was an individual entry by Jacob Camilleri from St John's Primary, Riverstone,' said Greg.
