In October 2007 EREA took over the management of the Christian Brothers' Schools across Australia. Their mandate is to foster the ethos of Blessed Edmund Rice throughout their schools. To do this they have established a Network Service Fee on each of the schools. This fee covers not only their administration costs but also assists schools and entities that are serving much poorer communities than ours.

Catholic Education Office WA (CEWA)

Trinity College, as part of the Catholic Education system of Western Australia, pays levies to the CEWA. These levies are charged to cover their administration costs and to assist in the co-responsibility of the establishment and support of other schools.
