“Help young become co-creators of the world”: EREA 2018 Congress

Educators from one of Australia’s largest Catholic school bodies have committed to helping their students and staff “seek new ways to be the inclusive, compassionate face of Christ in the world,” at their five-yearly gathering in Melbourne.

Dr Wayne Tinsey, the Executive Director of Edmund Rice Education Australia, outlined some of the commitments that emerged from the three-day Charting New Horizons Congress that sets a broad direction for the EREA community and its partners.

EREA runs more than 50 schools across every Australian state and territory, while connecting with an international community that featured among the 250 delegates in Melbourne.

“We commit to education that helps the young to become co-creators of their world,” Dr Tinsey told the Congress in his closing speech.
