Christian Brothers´ High School, Lewisham is a Catholic school catering for boys in Years 5 - 12
For almost a hundred and fifty years, the Congregation of the Christian Brothers has been a major contributor to and participant in the Church's ministry of Catholic schooling throughout Australia. The Christian Brothers guided by the inspirations of Blessed Edmund Rice founded Christian Brothers' High School Lewisham (CBHS) in 1889 and opened in 1891.
The school was originally conducted by the Trustees of the Christian Brothers. Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) was created in October 2007 by the Christian Brothers to govern their schools, including Christian Brothers' High School Lewisham. From that point, CBHS Lewisham will, along with other Edmund Rice schools, be governed by the Council and Board of EREA.
Edmund Rice Education Australia will continue to assist in the evangelizing mission of the Catholic Church, inspired by Blessed Edmund Rice's charism, the Brothers' gift to the whole church. Christian Brothers' High School Lewisham, as a school in the Edmund Rice tradition, has established a strong reputation and tradition based on the development and achievement in academic, spiritual values, cultural, sporting areas and the Creative arts.
