LifeLink Launch
College representatives from Year 7, 8 & 9 joined Ms Hepi and I for the Archbishop’s LifeLink Launch on Thursday, 20 May at Aranmore Catholic College.

LifeLink – Winter Appeal 2021
A reminder that each family is asked to bring to school, non-perishable cans or goods that will assist ‘The Shopfront’, a LifeLink Agency supporting needy families in the Archdiocese of Perth. We will create a ‘hamper wall’ in the Wandju Room and then donate the goods to ‘The Shopfront’.

LifeLink – Gold Coin Challenge
On Thursday, 24th June, each student is asked to bring a gold-coin donation to contribute to a House Money Chain. Each House will have an opportunity to make a money chain in an allocated area of the Wandju Room (House points to be awarded for the longest chain).

Young Mercies for Vinnies
This group held their first ‘combined’ meeting with the Young Vinnies from Mazenod College to discuss what events they are currently involved with and begin planning for the Young Mercies for Vinnies/Young Vinnies sleep-out next term. All students with a passion for social justice are invited to join this group – please see Notices in SEQTA Learn for further information.

Our first national gathering was held via Google Meet here at the College and attended by students in Year 10 & Year 11 on Friday, 21 May 2021. The theme was: To be as shining lamps – Mercy empowering women.

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.
