Our Reconciliation Commitment

We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the Traditional Owners of the land on which our schools and offices are placed. We are inspired and nurtured by the wisdoms, spiritualities and experiences of our First Nations Peoples. Together we work actively for reconciliation, justice, equity and healing.

Since 2009, the EREA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy has guided and informed EREA in the development of initiatives, programs and goals for promoting Catholic schools in the Edmund Rice tradition as a genuine option for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families. In 2014, EREA released its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Response following a full review of the previous policy. In 2019, EREA launched its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to support and guide our reconciliation journey. The three pillars of RelationshipsRespect and Opportunities are core to this journey.
