Edmund Rice College - Est. 1926

Thank you for attending our Try Year 7 For A Day

We are now accepting enrolments for 2025 & 2026

Your presence made the event a resounding success, and we hope you left with a deeper understanding of what makes Edmund Rice College a unique and vibrant learning community.

Missed out on this year’s event? We are excited to welcome you to our next Open Day in February 2025, where you can experience firsthand the spirit and excellence of Edmund Rice College. Stay tuned for more details as the date approaches.

Understanding that schedules can be challenging, and to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to explore our college, we encourage families who were unable to attend our Open Day to book a guided tour with the Principal. These tours offer a more personalised glimpse into our educational philosophy, facilities, and the warmth of our community.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edmund Rice College, where we’re not just a school, but a community that nurtures excellence, respect, and a lifelong love for learning.
