Try Year 7 For A Day

Choosing a high school is a very important decision. Try Year 7 for a Day at Edmund Rice College and make your decision an informed one.

Students will participate in a range of activities from subjects they will actually do in Year 7 such as Technology and Applied Studies, PDHPE, Science, Visual Arts, Music and Food Technology. It’s fun and it’s free.
