History

The Christian Brothers began work on the future governance of their schools in the late 1990s, culminating in the decision to establish Edmund Rice Education Australia in 2007, at the same time as the Brothers established the Oceania Province. In subsequent years Edmund Rice Education Australia was constituted as an independent body in both civil law and church law and it now has full responsibility for over 50 schools and learning centres across Australia.

In August 2016 it was announced that the Christian Brothers' Province Archive and Records Centres would be integrated. The then Province Archive and Records Repositories located in:


were, by the end of 2019, to be located with the existing Melbourne (Kelty) Archives in one place at Kelty House, the Treacy Centre, Parkville, Melbourne.
The existing Kelty Archives at Treacy were to be modified to increase its storage capacity. (See http://www.edmundrice.org.au/CBOceania/images/NewsPDF/Announcement_Province_Centre_to_Melbourne.pdf)
