From the Deputy Principal

As we farewell our final students as they head into their much deserved Christmas break, our staff are working fervently to finalized the Semester Two College Reports.  Reports will be available via SEQTA Engage by the 8th of December.  Should you have any difficulties with accessing SEQTA please contact our College Helpdesk on helpdesk@stbrigids.wa.edu.au.  We are already seeing some outstanding results showing and most importantly improvement from the first semester.  We are looking forward to continued progress by all our students and for them to achieve their personal goals.

Booklists have been published to the College website https://sbcl.wa.edu.au/enrolments/booklists/.  As advised we have changed supplier for 2023 and are looking forward to working with Campion Education.  The access code is located on the front page of each booklist.  Your home delivery order will be dispatched no later than the week ending 20th January 2023 but where possible will be dispatched earlier, if placed on or before the cut-off date of Friday, 9th December 2022.  The delivery service is free for orders placed by the 9th December 2022. After this date a delivery charge of up to $17.50 will be charged.  A ‘While You Wait’ collection service is available (Malaga or Canning Vale) but please note long delays can be experienced in the two weeks prior to the commencement of the school year and availability of all stock lines cannot be guaranteed at this time. All back ordered items will be posted and a delivery fee will apply.  Refunds will be given on textbooks/workbooks in new condition up to end of February 2023 or 2 weeks after the purchase date (whichever is later). Digital products and Stationery items cannot be refunded.  Campion will gladly refund or exchange any goods deemed faulty.

At this time of the year, our Year 12 2023 (current Year 11s) students may be considering changes to subjects based on their progress in Year 11.  Staff are available up until the 8th December for assistance and return to the College on the 30th January 2023. Students in Years 7 – 12 2023 have been advised of the subjects which they are studying next year, and final timetables via SEQTA are available at the commencement of the school year.

 

At this time of the year we also sadly farewell some of our students and families, we especially would like to acknowledge our Year 6 boys as they graduate from St Brigid’s and head to Year 7 primarily at Mazenod.  We wish our young men all the best and we look forward to hearing of your ventures (and when you return in 2023 for the Technology experience).  A reminder to these families that there is a need to download no later than the 16th December 2022, their son or daughter’s College Reports and other documents (e.g. NAPLAN or OLNA results), as after this time they will no longer accessible via SEQTA Engage. For College Reports issued in 2021 – 2022, these are located under the ‘Reports’ tab in SEQTA Engage.  You will find all other College Reports (i.e. those issued 2020 and earlier) and school documents in the ‘Documents’ tab in SEQTA Engage.  You will need to select your child’s name from the right-hand side and using the drop down, select ‘All’ as your Document date range. If you are using a mobile device you will need to turn the screen landscape to view student names.  I would recommend all families each year to download documents for safekeeping at home.

 

There has been must activity over the past weeks and I would like to acknowledge the Technologies teams from both St Brigid’s and Mazenod College for again providing an exceptional experience for the Year 7s at both schools.  We appreciate the work of the staff of both schools!

Our girls were fortunate to head to the woodworking room at Mazenod and created stunning cheese boards whilst the boys from Mazenod created a culinary delight of spaghetti Bolognese.  We also have been excited to be working with Mazenod in the area of Outdoor Recreation with our Year 10 students, using the expertise of the combined staff.  This was a fabulous initiative this year. We are looking forward to offering further opportunities in 2023.
