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

Kyra Clayton, Sharing Higher Experiences With Our Year 10s
Kyra Clayton, graduated from St Brigid’s in 2022, and she recently won South Metropolitan TAFE’s VET Secondary Student of the Year Award . Kyra was one of seven recipients of the award out of a total of 24,000 TAFE students. Last week Kyra visited the College to provide some mentorship to our Year 10s. Kyra spoke about the various pathways to tertiary study, how she navigated them at St Brigid’s, the subject choices that worked for her as well as her personal epiphanies when it came to study styles and her abilities. “The dedication and perseverance of my teachers pushed me forward to be the best I can be, and they never let me give up or do anything less than my full potential. St Brigid’s allowed me to find new opportunities and ways to achieve my goals which were outside of the school’s set curriculum. This game me the drive to push myself to amazing opportunities and to do the things that have lead me to where I am today, “said Kyra. Today, Kyra is enrolled at ECU, where she is pursuing an Undergraduate Degree in Human Resource.
