Formation Programs

Formation is not only essential to our identity as Catholic schools with a life giving link to the Edmund Rice charism but is also crucial to our own personal growth and development.

Immersion and Partnership Programs

EREA organises and supports a number of Immersion and Partnership programs for leaders and staff that promote a faith-based response to global solidarity and a commitment to reconciliation, including programs to Indigenous communities, India, Africa and South America.

A pathway for transformation
In striving to provide Catholic Education in the Edmund Rice Tradition, we seek to provide relevant and meaningful formative experiences that companions and nurtures the growth of those who shape and influence the educational experience throughout their time with EREA. As such, EREA Formation Programs are organised into three movements of Setting out, Deepening and Leading.
