Dear <<First Name>>,

The CEnet Bulletin is provided to inform and support member dioceses.

This week's edition welcomes Catholic Education Northern Territory to CEnet membership and highlights the 'Book Of The Week' recommendations for Harmony Week, Catholic Learning Online workshops, a professional learning event from the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office and webinars from the the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.

We hope you find this bulletin of interest and that you will feel free to share it with your colleagues, who are welcome to subscribe.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions and following the comments we received about last week's International Women's Day edition of the bulletin, thought we would share the link in case you missed it.

Welcome to Catholic Education Northern Territory

The CEnet membership has grown to 17 dioceses following the Board approval of the Catholic Education Northern Territory’s request to join.
Catholic Education Northern Territory
CEnet membership for the Catholic Education Northern Territory (CE NT) is not a new thing however, with the diocese having been one of the 11 member dioceses when CEnet was incorporated in 2007.

The diocese remained a member until 2012, when an opportunity arose for CE NT to leverage services from NT Schools, enabling closer collaboration within the territory.

As CEnet has matured, there is recognition of the value that the CEnet membership can once again provide CE NT, and in January 2021, we welcomed the diocese back into the CEnet membership.

The CE NT, covers the whole of the Northern Territory making it the largest geographic diocese in the membership.

The diocese includes 18 schools and around 4800 students, from Murrupurtiyanuwu Catholic Primary School and Xavier Catholic College on Bathurst Island in the north to Ltyentye Apurte Catholic School - Santa Teresa, Alice Springs in the south.
Book of the Week
The CEnet member dioceses ACEN eBook Consortium, with the assistance of Lisa Nash and Saba Maniar from the Digital Learning and Library Services in Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta provide the book of the week feature for students and staff who have access to the SORA eBook Library.

Each week, two reading recommendations for eBooks or audio books, with age guidance are published for primary school students and high school students and to make sure that no-one is left out, there is a recommendation for staff too.

This is Harmony Week and this week's books will be useful if teachers are discussing with their students.
Click on any of the three options above to go straight to the recommended books and enjoy the read!
