In November many key staff from schools right across the European Province gathered in Dublin to share their experiences of why and how we participate in overseas immersion projects as a key aspect of delivering an Edmund Rice education.
The aim of the meeting was to compile all experiences to date, share good practice and plan out new European Province Immersion Handbook.
The English office is currently collating all the excellent work that went on that day and we will meet again in the new year to write up the documentation into a useful guide for all schools in the network to be able to turn to when planning and undertaking an immersion project.
#EREBB Education truly knew no borders that day! Keep your eye out for the new guide which we plan to have available by September 2108.
O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
