In 2020, we are focused on achieving our learning goals in the areas of flexible learning spaces, assessing effectively to improve teaching and learning outcomes and building stronger community partnerships. We encourage you to book an appointment with our Principal, Tony Hunter, Assistant Principal, Jan Condon or a member of our passionate and committed staff to discuss the learning opportunities and faith formation of students in our Kyogle community.
Learning from Home – Families
As we come to gather we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We commit ourselves to actively working alongside Aboriginal people for reconciliation and justice
Welcome to the New School Year
A big welcome to all in our St Brigid’s School community as a new year of education gets underway. We would like to welcome our new families and staff members who are joining us, and wish them a rewarding and successful year. Our newest and youngest school members have begun Kindy and were especially excited on their first day as they came through the gates wearing their uniform with pride and carrying their new school bag. There were big smiles and perhaps a little trepidation. However, our Kinder students are settling into school routines very quickly, having fun and making new friends. We look forward to another great year ahead.
ST BRIGID’S SCHOOL – NATIONAL AWARD WINNERS
Congratulations St Brigid’s Primary School, Kyogle for being awarded two National Awards for Best Cultural History Award and the Reconciliation Story Award supported by Reconciliation Australia, for their entry in the ‘Wakakirri’ performing arts competition. They also received five performance and production awards for excellent theme/concept, excellent overall costume design, excellent performance teamwork, excellent group dance and excellent ensemble to add to the school’s success.
St Brigid’s Primary entered their first ever ‘Wakakirri’ competition this year. This is Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools and is open to primary and secondary schools Australia wide. Through the involvement in ‘Wakakirri’, the students were given the opportunity to build confidence, resilience and an appreciation of culture. The entry from St Brigid’s comprised students from Kindergarten to Year 6 who committed to give up much of their own time to be a part of this cultural activity. (more…)
