I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you and farewell those staff who are leaving the College at the end of 2021. Some are coming to the end of a temporary contract; others are moving on to new opportunities in new settings. We wish them well in their future endeavours. We thank: Mrs Jacqualynn Carlon, Ms Maggie Mangan, Mrs Kate Woolnough, and Mr Hayden Michlmayr.
As I conclude my first year as Principal at ERC I am genuinely grateful for the great privilege to lead such a life-giving community where our students grow and are educated in faith and love. We have much to be proud of as a College community as we remain true to the charism of Edmund Rice himself.
I take this opportunity to wish you all a healthy, safe and blessed Christmas.
