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.

Last Thursday the 1U class led our community mass. This term the parish has been doing a “focus” on friendship with our students when they attend the Friday masses over at St Patrick’s church, 1U led this mass for all of our students here at St Brigid’s.

The focus for our masses this term have been a wonderful reminder for everyone about the importance of friendship, how we can be ‘good’ friends and how we can follow in the steps of Jesus to do this. This goes hand-in-hand with M.J.R. and what we learn about in our M.J.R. groups

Friends are one of life’s great treasures. One of the great side effects of primary school is learning to make friends. Right throughout life you meet wonderful people – friends who will help you on your journey through life.

Some children have already been to other schools before, and the hard part of leaving their friends behind was making new ones. Throughout our lives we make new friends and so it is always a topic that we need to continue to discuss and work on.

Some of the important topics that we cover in M.J.R. that directly relate to being a good friend include:

  • Being a WESTie
  • Be a giver – not a taker
  • G.S.T.
  • Be a grinner and a winner – not a moaner and groaner

Life is tough, it is full of ups and downs, challenges, successes and failures but it is our friends – the ones we love who keep us going and encourage us. So as our students have been learning we can ask ourselves “What would Jesus do?” Let us follow in his footsteps, showing the Spirit of Jesus to everyone – especially our friends!

On Friday September 21st we will have a “Dress like a Farmer” day to raise money for the CEO Drought Appeal which assists families in our 3 most western Catholic Schools in Longreach, Blackall and Barcaldine. This will be a gold coin donation. I know you all love dressing up.

Well progress certainly creates a buzz in our community. The greenhouse is up and is looking amazing. Our next step is to install the irrigation for this, and to order our seedlings and equipment to start growing our food.

We will also be purchasing some compost bins, so keep an ear out for how this will operate within the school community. Next, we are on the lookout for the following items - pots, polystyrene boxes, and yes - a kitchen sink! We would love to hear what you would like to see growing in the greenhouse, please let us know your comments and suggestions, there will be a form on the noticeboard and at the office. More excitement and progress to follow after the holidays, stay tuned, or better yet get involved.
