Website Issues


Welcome to our website...

Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision. Here at St Brigid’s we provide a safe and supportive faith filled environment for your children to learn and develop. I believe an obvious strength of our school is our positive, family atmosphere. The children are loved, respected and taught well. We offer our students a well-rounded education that supports personal growth based on catholic values.

An effective education requires open and honest communication. At St Brigid’s we believe that mutually supportive and trusting relationships between the school and home provide the foundation for optimal student learning and development.

Our faith is central to all that we are. Following the way of St Brigid we strive to see the spirit of Jesus in our actions and the actions of others. Our School Motto “Gentleness and Strength” encourages our whole school community to act with gentleness but with strength in what we know to be right.

I invite you to explore our website to find out more about St Brigid's.  If I can be of assistance in any way please don't hesitate to contact me.

As the last of the workers left St Brigid’s with the final safety fence panel last week, our school was a construction site no longer. Throughout the 2017 school year our campus has been a worksite as we eagerly watched the construction of four more classrooms, a Library, Learning Enrichment Centre, Meeting Room, outdoor performance area and the transformation of the Staff Room. The third stage of construction is now complete and we are preparing to move into these facilities, exciting times.


Socktober is an initiative of Catholic Mission and one way which our school can fundraise and engage in advocacy and formation activities for Catholic Mission during World Mission Month in October.

Throughout the Month of October each class will have a mission box located on their prayer table. During the month we are encouraging students to donate any loose change to help those who are less fortunate.

We will also be hold a “Crazy Sock Day” fundraiser on Friday 13th of Week 2 next term. Students will wear their uniform as normal but may wear crazy socks for the day – it will be a gold coin donation to participate in this.

All money raised will be donated to the Catholic Mission who use this to help support those in need in Uganda.

On Wednesday 13th September the school will once again be competing in the Tony Novak Memorial Touch competition in Rockhampton. The school attended the carnival for the first time in 2016 and the experience the children gain from this day is invaluable. The competition is for students in year 6 but due to our smaller year 6 class we are allowed to have a combined year 5 and year 6 team. The team will travel to Rockhampton on the Tuesday afternoon and will play Touch games at the Cyril Connor fields on the Wednesday and return to Emerald Wednesday afternoon / evening. The team consists of Year six students Madisyn, Brooklyn, Nate, Timothy, Joel, Cleah, Charma and Lance. Along with Year 5 students Keelan, Isobel and Laura,
