SBC Embraces Global Education with Brazilian Students

Published 15/03/2024 · Academic

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.

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.
