Okay, it is fair to say that Term Three has slipped right by without evening stopping for a breath.

So, what have the young ladies achieved so far this term?

The Year Eleven’s stood up in front of the Year Seven to Eleven students presenting their speeches about why they should be voted for a 2022 College Leadership position. The voting was done online after the speeches, and the girls have interviews with relevant staff members for their area.

The young ladies in Year Ten and the boys from Mazenod College have been attending dance lessons for two weeks, which led to the formal dance social where they had the opportunity to display these steps and some original dance steps. A massive shout out to Ms Wood and her social committee, who turned the gym into a Night in New York. The young ladies dressed beautifully for the evening, and some of the young ladies brought a change of shoes so they could still dance but in comfort.

The Year Elevens had the opportunity to invite a significant male figure to the Father-Daughter Dinner, where they were tested on how much they knew each other. Then the girls had to test their accuracy to win a prize for their Father for Father’s Day. Judith Cumpsty and her committee members put a fantastic evening on, and managed to turn the Staffroom into an Night Amongst the Stars. Entertainment for the evening was by the Year Eleven band, who played and sang Mad World by Tears For Fears.

It was great to see the number of secondary students dress up for book week, from Bob the Builder, to Dr Seuss and Bananas in Pyjamas.

As you know, the college has a subscription to SchoolTV. The link below is designed to empower parents with fact-based, helpful information, offering practical and ongoing support strategies for anxiety. Anxiety symptoms are sometimes not all that obvious as they often develop gradually and can be difficult to distinguish from day-to-day worries. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life.

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.
