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.

Italian: Academic Extension Beyond The Classroom  
During Term 1 our St Brigid’s College Year 3 –8 students were invited to participate in the Education Perfect Global Language Competition in Italian. The EP Languages Championship (EPLC) are a free event where students can compete at their own ability level. This competition is designed to help boost students’ personal learning journey, engage the students with curriculum-aligned content, and motivate them to compete on an international stage. They spent many hours outside of the classroom aiming for the highest possible score.  The competition created a lot of excitement amongst our students and drove a more in depth engagement in Italian. Students who reached medal status within our competition, showing great dedication in practicing the Italian language were invited to a Pizza Party on Tuesday 10th May during lunch time as a small acknowledgement of their achievement. It was great to have the cross section of both our primary and secondary students celebrating their achievements together!
