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.

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.
