St Brigid's Website
Welcome to the St Brigid's website where you will find up to date information on all areas of our college.
Welcome to St Brigid's College in 2016, 87 years since it was established by the Mercy Sisters. Here approximately 1300 students aged 3 to 18 Years, from across Western Australia and overseas are offered a variety of opportunities to become principled, inquiring, knowledgeable, thinking, communicators, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective lifelong learners confident in their place as contributing citizens and leaders in the world. Our community has ambitious, but achievable goals for all students.
Congratulations to the Class of 2016 WACE students
We are delighted that our girls results overall were very pleasing with an ATAR median score well above the median WA figure (and nearly 7% above the last two years). Fourteen girls scored ATARs over 90 and 6 of these were 95+ Our highest scoring student achieved an ATAR score of 98.55 - an exceptional achievement!
Principal's Christmas Message
It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us - it seems only yesterday that we were commencing the 2016 school year - and what a wonderful year it has been! So much so, that it is worthwhile to stop and reflect on the many blessings we have shared as a college community throughout the year and the many occasions when we have together celebrated the many successes of our girls and boys both in and out of the classroom.
In recent weeks, even as the final day of term approached, the campus was abuzz with much learning activity and a series of special events including Grandparents' Day, Valedictory Dinner, the inaugural Sportspersons Dinner, orientation days for new students and their parents, the thank you afternoon tea for college helpers, Christmas concerts and plays and Twilight Carols on the Green. It is at these times, when we all come together, that the true strength of the St Brigid's community is most evident.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank our dedicated staff for their commitment to the girls and boys and their careful care and guidance of each student. The many learning opportunities and experiences they provide enhance the lives of each of the children immeasurably. Our support staff, maintenance team and catering personnel too, have all worked together to ensure the smooth day to day running of their respective areas. To those staff leaving the College, we send our best wishes for their future endeavours. Each of them has made a contribution to St Brigid's in their own unique way.
Whilst many of our students will be enjoying the start of their break, Our Cambodia Immersion Tour, made of students, staff and parents, will be spending the next two weeks in Cambodia helping the needy, visiting schools and orphanages and also connecting with some of our Mercy sisters working in the country. This is truly a worthwhile endeavour and for many, a life changing time in their lives. Throughout this year we have regularly seen this spirit of mercy and giving evident across the College and I'm deeply humbled by the way our young people commit themselves to bettering the lives of those less fortunate.
It would be remiss of me not to thank our parent body for your continued support - you help us and in so doing, enable us to nurture and support your children. Without your willingly given help be it in the classroom, Learning Plaza, Cafe, at the various sporting events and other extra-curricular activities, or setting up for the multitude of special events in our college calendar, we couldn't do what we do or achieve so much without your assistance. God bless you all.
I would like to wish you all a very safe break with your children, unwind together and create precious family time. The new year will bring us many more exciting and stimulating challenges as a community and I do look forward to you all sharing the 2017 journey with us.
As we find ourselves now caught between the final bits and pieces that need doing to finalise the school year and preparing for the holidays and our own personal Christmas celebrations, I am mindful of the words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (18/12/05) "Joy is the true gift of Christmas, not the expensive gifts that call for time and money. We can communicate this joy simply: with a smile, a kind gesture, a little help, forgiveness. And the joy we give will certainly come back to us".
Christmas is not only the commemoration of an historical event that occurred 2000 years ago, it is a spiritual event to be lived within each of us. Our mission is to make holy the secular aspects of Christmas and we do this by being holy people - kind, patient, generous, laughing people no matter how maddening the Christmas rush around us.
May the joy and peace of Christmas and the New Year be with you and your family.
