It has been a busy week for our girls with many attending end of season presentations for hockey and netball. Congratulations to Kiera Watts on her runner up Fairest and Best hockey award.

Last Sunday, our Year 12 boarders were farewelled at high tea and later in the evening at a fabulous Skit Night which was organised by our Year 11’s.

Monday evening’s Mercy Dinner was a wonderful event attended by our Sisters of Mercy who always love catching up with the boarders and hearing their stories. We also announced our 2022 boarding leaders and I congratulate the girls below on being elected to the Boarding Council.

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.
