We would like to congratulate the Year 6 class members on the receiving of their leadership badges. Due to COVID restrictions the ceremony had to be held with just the students in attendance. The following video highlights the pictures taken at the event.
This video is in recognition of all the work our wonderful staff complete every day to provide the best learning environment. As a team of dedicated professionals everyone strives to provide a warm and caring environment with the child at the center. We hope you know how much we appreciate your continued efforts.
The School Advisory Council has been busy preparing the plans for our new extension of the Year One Classrooms as well as the new outdoor learning areas for the Pre-Primary and Kindergarten. As a Council we have worked on the plans for the past two years and we have now commenced the build. Demolition began on Tuesday 28th September, this is a very exciting time for our school.
To make this all possible you may have noticed that Year 1A moved into the library and will remain there until the end of the year. Year 1B have also moved into the Helping Hands classroom, they will stay in this room until the end of the year. Helping Hands will begin running from the Kindy A classroom from the beginning of next Term which is Tuesday 12th October. At the beginning of 2022 Helping Hands will return to their previous room.
We envisage that the build will be completed by February ready for the start of the new year. We thank the staff for the amazing way they have effortlessly moved rooms and the way they have helped our students transition so smoothly.

On Friday night Peter Constable was the winner of the Agnes Weymouth Award.
The Agnes Weymouth Award recognises any member of the school community who actively supports the school by working in partnership for the best outcomes for all.
Every member of our community is aware of the amazing work that Peter Constable, our sensational groundsman, does every day. You will see Peter at every event held in our school making a difference. He has that amazing attitude of nothing is too much trouble for our school community. You will see him at P & F events cooking up a storm on the bbq, putting up bunting and setting up lights. He is always prepared to help out even on weekends to ensure our school looks amazing and is working well.
We also had nominations for Karryn Purchase our P & F President and Paula Mackenzie our Principal.
Congratulations to all for an outstanding achievement.
The students of St Brigid’s created a documentary to highlight the school community lead initiative called St Ems. This initiative helps to support LifeLink’s Shopfront service by providing support to those in our local community who are in need. This video was included in the 2021 LifeLink Launch held at Newman College.
4th May, was a very special time for the thirty-four children who made their First Reconciliation and for their proud parents and family too! Congratulations to the children on your wonderful preparation and participation. Thank you to their parents and family for your pleasing support now and into your child’s future sacramental participation. A sincere thank you to their class teachers, Ms Davies and Ms Mitchell, for your excellent preparation of the children and fantastic assistance with the liturgy. Thank you also to Mrs Yeo for your pleasing help with the PowerPoint presentation and music, along with all staff who attended in support. We had a wonderful team of Priests including Fr Benny, Fr Liam and Fr Michael to assist us and I would like to thank and acknowledge them for their important religious leadership. May the peace of our Lord remain with you all.
Our Sacred Space project has been a vision for a number of years and has now come to fruition. It is great to see this vision turn into a reality. Our Sacred Space incorporates a small grotto and provides a focal point for our school community. This is an area where students and teachers can connect to God through prayer and reflection.
