With Head, Heart, Hands & Feet

A Framework for Educating for Justice & Peace

Edmund Rice Education Australia strives to offer a liberating education, based on a gospel spirituality, within an inclusive community, committed to justice and solidarity. These touchstones provide the foundation for Edmund Rice schools to educate for justice and peace, and offer hope to a world where the dignity of humanity and the integrity of creation is often diminished. An holistic approach to justice and peace education includes an integration of head, heart, hands and feet.

“Let us ask the Lord and all those engaged in the noble service of politics that the more sensitive questions of our day, such as those linked to movements of migration, climate change and the right of everyone to enjoy primary goods, may be faced with generous and farsighted responsibility and in a spirit of cooperation, especially among those countries most able to help.”
Pope Frances, World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, 1 September 2018
