As we finish what has been both a busy and challenging term for us all, I looked back on my newsletter item at the same time last year and wouldn’t you know it, COVID 19 was a focus as it has been in recent days! Once again, I thank you all for your support and congratulate the girls for the very understanding and cooperative manner in which they have taken the restrictions of the last week in their stride.

I will, prior to the start of Term 3, be writing to you with any updates that the rapidly and constantly changing situation brings us. But just to be prepared and on the safe side, please make sure that your daughter returns to boarding with at least 2 Perth based guardians in the event we need to shut down rapidly and the girls need to be collected. It would also be useful for each girl to have a supply of face masks and hand sanitiser for person use.

I wish the girls a great break – they have certainly earnt a rest and a few long sleep ins. It has been wonderful to see them so involved in their winter sport and many of the boarding activities available to them including horse riding and kick boxing.

Please do take the time to sit with your daughter and go through her school and boarding report. Many girls are to be congratulated for their excellent effort across both areas, but a small number need to reflect on their overall performance and attitude at both school and boarding and come back with a renewed purpose to improve their personal performance.

I thank Year 11 students Kyra and Savannah who ran a fantastic end of term theme dinner on Monday evening. The theme was Disney and the girls did an amazing job in creating the menu with the chefs and decorating the dining room. Their leadership was outstanding, well done girls.

As always, I’m grateful to you all for your support and understanding.

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.
