A majority of this term has been spent in the Church Season of Lent. The forty-day Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Holy Thursday evening with the Celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. It is a time for Christians to commit to strengthening their faith through the three pillars of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

We are most grateful for the generosity of our College families who supported and donated items for our Easter Raffle – we were able to put together nearly 70 gift packs for prizes. All money raised from our Sausage Sizzle, Easter Raffle and Project Compassion Boxes will support projects coordinated by Caritas in Australia and neighbouring countries. Thank you for your support!

Stations of the Cross

We concluded the term with a whole school assembly: a prayerful reflection on the Stations of the Cross led by our Year 5 students. We remembered the path Jesus took on Good Friday. On the way to His death, Jesus showed us how to live and how to die. We cannot rise with Christ unless we walk the path with Him.

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” [Luke 24:5]

Happy Easter to all SBC families!

Mr Adrian Martino
Head of Faith & Mission

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.
