Pre Kindy to Year 6 at St Brigid’s College, high impact teaching in a nurturing environment
At St Brigid’s College, we light the way for all our students…..We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to become a successful learner and a confident, creative individual, who is not just good at learning but good at life. Many in the community are well aware of St Brigid’s College for students in Years 7 to 12. However, our Primary campus, located side-by-side to our Secondary campus, is filled…

Tiny Mic Ministry Launches at SBC
Tiny Mic Ministry (TMM) has hit the ground running across the SBC campus this term. A brand-new initiative by Year 12 Leaders, Anja H (the spokesperson), Serena T (content developer) and Olivia R (fundraising & engagement officer). Tiny Mic Ministry is a 2024 Ministry initiative aimed at engaging more young people to be involved in fundraising events that better the lives of people less fortunate than ourselves. Conceptualised by Anja (inspired by a little bit of online shopping where she spotted the said Tiny Mic), the idea behind TMM was stemmed from the notion that people are less inclined to donate money when they don’t understand where the money is going. What better way to bring it to life but with some vibrant roving reporting around campus. As a Mercy school, St Brigid’s has a long history of providing assistance to our brothers and sisters in Australia and overseas. As the world around us changes, the ways we engage in raising funds and awareness needs to evolve. Tiny Mic Ministry aims to utilise the expansive platform of social media to raise awareness and much needed funds, for various initiatives throughout the year at SBC, in a fun and engaging way. We’ll be looking forward to more fourth-wall breaking news brought to us by our students behind Tiny Mic Ministry. Keep an eye on the SBC socials on Facebook and Instagram for more Tiny Mic Ministry videos and reels!

SBC Embraces Global Education with Brazilian Students
In January this year, a remarkable journey began for a cohort of 1000  Brazilian students as they embarked on a  five-month ‘Winning the World’ educational exchange in various countries. 500 students were selected to explore opportunities in Australia, with a notable contingent of 100 finding themselves welcomed to Western Australia. St. Brigid’s College was selected to host nine students for six months, of which these students have since immersed themselves in our College and our Boarding community.  Over the past seven weeks, they have embraced their Australian experience with boundless enthusiasm, finding particular joy in the charming presence of our iconic kangaroos and koalas. This cultural exchange not only enriches academic pursuits but also fosters lasting friendships and provides our students with a deeper appreciation for the diverse tapestry of our global community.

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!
