Building Learning Power
At Edmund Rice College, our students are immersed in relevant, dynamic learning and an atmosphere of high-quality teaching.
Our framework Building Learning Power enables students to become lifelong learners. Our students learn to be tenacious, resourceful, imaginative and logical, self-disciplined, self-aware, collaborative and inquisitive.
We cultivate habits and attitudes that enable our students to become better leaners, face challenges and uncertainty calmly, confidently and creatively. We see our students develop greater concentration and focus, deeper thinking and an enjoyment of learning.
Students throughout the world need now to reach higher levels of achievement, not only to find fulfilling work but also to empower themselves to thrive in an increasingly complex worldDylan Wiliam

We are committed to improving the literacy and numeracy skills of all students. Our literacy and numeracy improvement program, ‘Literacy Matters & Numeracy Counts’, has a significant impact by tracking student achievement, student interventions and continuous staff training.
Our students have achieved excellent NAPLAN results in recent years.
Each year, our students set academic and personal goals. Setting goals enables our students to increase motivation, maintain focus and reach for their personal best.
