Formation Opportunities

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
EREA formative opportunities offer a pathway for transformation comprised of three movements: setting out, deepening and leading. We invite all within our EREA communities, inclusive of Board members and other volunteers, to participate in relevant and meaningful experiences that companion and nurture personal growth, as well as support and build the capacity of all to contribute to Catholic education in the Edmund Rice Tradition.
