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.

COMMUNITY NEWS

FRUIT AND VEGIE GARDEN FOR ST BRIGID'S
Over the past week we received some wonderful news. We have been successful in obtaining a grant from the Kestrel Community Development Fund, we are very grateful for their generosity and support of our school and the Central Highlands community. This well compiled application was the work of our Parents and Friends Association and groundsman. Carly Kiely, Claire Mallyon and Alan McIndoe invested many hours into this application and the result is now a pending project, thank you very much to those three people and all others involved. The project is the staged construction of a fruit and vegetable garden under the banner of the Stephanie Alexander Garden Projects. This garden will certainly add to our school landscape and involve our students and wider community offering support for organisations such as the Neighbourhood Centre and Yumba Bimbi Respite Service. Early next year more information and detail will be available and we are all very excited for the work to begin.

PREP TO YEAR ONE ORIENTATION
This term the Prep children will begin their orientation to Year One. They will visit the Year One classrooms each Wednesday in weeks 7 and 8 from 11:15 am til 12:10pm. During these visits the children will be able to experience what it's like to be in Year one and sit at their own desk. They will be doing a variety of educational activities including letters, fine motor activities, reading and writing. The Prep children will be taught by our current Year one teachers Mrs Upton and Mrs Gibson. The Prep assistants will also be joining them in Year one for the morning. 

The current Year One children will be working in the Prep classrooms during this time with the Prep teachers, Mrs Sihlberg and Miss Small. They always enjoy going back to where it all began.  If you have any questions regarding the Prep to Year one orientation, please see your child's classroom teacher.

STUDENT AWARDS
On Friday November 24th there will be a special assembly held in the MPA. This assembly will celebrate the academic achievements and efforts of students in each class. In every Prep – year six class, a student will be chosen to receive the St Brigid’s Medallion, this will be awarded to a student who:

1. Displays a high level of school spirit
2. Participates in the majority of school activities
3. Treats others with respect
4. Displays a good attitude to their work
5. Is willing to accept responsibility
6. Assists the staff
7. Takes pride in themselves

Also in every Year 3 to 6 class an Academic Achievement Award will be presented. This award will be presented to a student who displays the greatest overall understanding of the content and skills covered in all Key Learning Areas (subjects) and is reflected in their formal reporting (semester one and two).

SCHOOL LEADERS
We will be electing some specific school leaders for 2018 this term. Two School Captains and six House Captains (two for each house) will be elected from our year five class. The successful candidates will be announced at the conclusion of the Awards Assembly on Friday November 24th. Over the coming weeks more information regarding the application and selection process will be presented to the year five students. The addition of these two important processes in our school calendar is reflective of the transition our school community and student body has made over the past few years. I am excited to be part of this growth at St Brigid’s as I am sure you all are.
