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

CURRICULUM NEWS
In many lines of work employees are required to undertake improvement processes. As a part of this, they set goals against standards which are then used to measure progress or growth. In education teachers do this with their students in the classroom and as a part of their own professional practice. AITSL – the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership sets standards which outline what a teacher should be aiming to achieve at every stage of their career. This allows for improved practice both in and outside of the classroom.

These standards move from Graduate to Proficient onto Highly Accomplished and finally to Lead. The domains of teaching – professional knowledge, professional practice and professional engagement sit above these seven standards to provide the ‘bigger picture’. The standards that teachers work to develop are:

  • Know students and how they learn
  • Know the content and how to teach it
  • Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning
  • Create and maintain a supportive learning environment
  • Assess provide feedback and report on student learning
  • Engage in professional learning
  • Engage professionally with colleagues, parents/ carers and the community

At St Brigid’s teachers are continually working on perfecting their knowledge and skills in relation to these standards. They participate in Professional Learning Teams to engage with educational research, analyse and respond to student data, share successful classroom practices and discuss ways to overcome challenges.

In 2019 our school will build on this learning further, with ‘Learning Walks’. A Learning Walk is when a small group of teachers visit multiple classrooms with the aim to foster conversations about the teaching and learning in order to develop a shared vision of high quality teaching, thus having a positive impact on student learning. I am disappointed that I will not get to witness firsthand the wonderful learning that is occurring across our school but know that all teachers will relish in the learning that these ‘Learning Walks’ will produce.

COMING EVENTS
In the next couple of weeks, we have a number of very important events happening here at St Brigid’s. One of the first events is the annual school End of Year Christmas Concert on the evening of Wednesday 28th November. All students will be involved in this production and the students have been very busy rehearsing the songs and learning their lines with Mrs Connelly. Following this, the school will hold the annual school swimming carnival on Friday 30th at the town pool. And in the blink of an eye it is the last week of the school year (only 3 days)!!! On the Monday 3rd December, we will be holding our Awards Assembly commencing at 9:00 in the MPA - everyone is welcome to join. On the last day of school, Wednesday 5th is the Mass of Thanksgiving and Graduation Ceremony. This will commence at 9:00am in the MPA , once again everyone is welcome to join. There will be time after the graduation ceremony for parents and families to stay for a ‘cuppa’.
