We have ended the year with our annual collection of food for the Vinnies Christmas Hampers. The local Lesmurdie and Kalamunda St Vincent de Paul Society conferences, deliver Christmas Hampers to families in need in the local community. This year St Brigid’s College combined with Mazenod College to collect and put together over 90 Christmas Hampers – a big thank you to our generous families who donated non-perishable food items. A number of students from St Brigid’s & Mazenod volunteered to sort the items and put together the boxes for delivery this week. Your donation brought a little joy to a family this Christmas – what a great gift!

“Christmas is built upon a beautiful and intentional paradox; that the birth of the homeless should be celebrated in every home.”
G.K. Chesterton

Christmas blessings and peace to all our families this Christmas!

Adrian Martino
Head of Faith & Mission

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.
