Dear Parents

Welcome to Term 2 . Our focus this term is on kindness and treating each other with respect. Residential living isn’t easy and it does require much compromise. I hope to see the girls embrace the diversity in our boarding family and aim to create an atmosphere of warmth and homeliness where all girls can thrive and enjoy every aspect of their boarding experience.

Despite a three day lock down over the ANZAC Day weekend bringing a quick halt to our boarding recreation programme, our boarders were able to organise and attend a driveway service to commemorate ANZAC Day. The adaptability of the girls under lockdown conditions was absolutely wonderful to see as they resorted to good old fashioned games and activities organised in house by the staff.



I’d like to thank you all for your support over the lockdown period and your patience . A big thank you too to all the staff for their efforts in keeping those girls who stayed in occupied so well.

Best wishes

Annamaria Cream
Head of Boarding

Year 11 Biology Embraces the Bush!
Gear up for adventure! Last week, our intrepid Year 11 Biology students swapped the classroom for the great outdoors, participating in a special field camp at Dwellingup alongside Mazenod College. This immersive experience provided a first-hand look at the fascinating world of ecological monitoring. Guided by the esteemed Mr. C, Environmental Educator of the Year, the students learned the art of fauna trapping – a crucial skill for understanding native animal populations. Just before sunset they set traps to capture nocturnal visitors, waking before dawn with anticipation to see what critters called the bushland home. Their efforts were rewarded with the exciting discovery of three Mardos and a curious Quenda! While the day brought a quite a bit of rain, the students’ spirits remained high as they delved into the techniques of flora surveys. Despite returning a little soggy, their knowledge and enthusiasm were truly enriched. This valuable camp experience forms the foundation for an exciting project back at St Brigid’s. The Year 11 biologists will now conduct a baseline flora survey of our very own school bushland. Armed with this data, they’ll then develop a conservation plan to ensure this precious ecosystem thrives for future generations. Stay tuned! We can’t wait to see the amazing results of their exploration and conservation efforts.
