Celebrating the Tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice
On Monday 11th May 2015, six students from each of the four Presentation Brothers Schools Trust schools and from six Edmund Rice Schools Trust schools came together in the City Hall, Cork to share their vision and experience of Edmund Rice Education in the Presentation and Christian Brothers’ tradition.
The event was launched by the Lord Mayor of Cork, Councillor Mary Shields, and was addressed by sports star Donncha O’ Callaghan, who challenged the students to reach out to others. Br. Brian Bond, Edmund Rice International Geneva, addressed the gathering and spoke of the work of Advocacy and encouraged students to establish a justice group in their school.
