20 year Celebration after amalgamation of three Catholic schools
Recently an Associate School of EREA, Columba Catholic College (Charters Towers, QLD) celebrated 20 years since the amalgamation of three Catholic schools which were run by the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and the Christian Brothers.
The President of EREA, Br Paul Oakley, was a special guest at these celebrations to present the Certificate of Association with EREA.
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the traditional owners and custodians of the land of our schools. We are inspired and nurtured by their wisdom, spirituality and experience. We commit ourselves to actively work alongside them for reconciliation and justice. We pay our respects to the Elders; past, present and future. As we take our next step we remember the first footsteps taken on this sacred land.
