Here's a little about what you and your child can expect at St Brigid's:
Inspired by our Catholic values and the Benedictine tradition, St Brigid's is committed to developing leaders of faith, justice and learning.
We provide a positive environment to support our students in seeking God within a community of prayer, service and hospitality faithful to the mission of Jesus.
We encourage our students to listen with the ear of the heart to work for the common good and respond to our neighbour and all of creation with energy, loving generosity and right relationships.
Underlying our school’s commitment to authentic learning is our emphasis on developing the skills and competencies of critical and creative thinking, collaboration and communication. Students set learning goals, deconstruct learning intentions, co-construct success criteria, engage in higher order thinking tasks and choice-based learning. They use technology, our flexible learning spaces and teacher expertise to enhance their learning opportunities.
The school has many wonderful facilities including contemporary indoor and outdoor learning spaces and play spaces. The learning environments have been renovated in line with current understanding of the wide range of student learning styles. All of our classrooms and library have spaces for students to work, including:
Our highly experienced, proficient and dedicated teachers and support staff work to provide effective learning experiences for every student in their care. At St Brigid's, we recognise that each child is unique and learns in a variety of ways, and at different rates – therefore, our staff have a student-centred approach to teaching and learning that empowers students to take control of their learning to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We offer a wide variety of opportunities and enrichment for students, including in Mathematics, Writing, STEM, Sport, Visual Arts and Music.
All students are encouraged to participate in some of the co-curricular programs available at our school. These programs develop students’ confidence, talents and sense of responsibility.

As the primary educators of their children, we encourage a high level of parent engagement in our students' educational experience and welcome parents' participation and involvement in school initiatives.
Our P&F Association also does great work in partnership with our school, benefiting our students and school community.
Our school offers onsite before and after school care services, operated by CatholicCare.
