Book_Week_2022.jpg

2022 CBCA Book Week is being celebrated from Monday 22nd August to Friday 26th August. This year's theme is 'Dreaming with Open Eyes'. Our students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character and participant in our parade 9am on Friday 22th August. Parents are welcome to attend. We are excited to celebrate our children’s love of reading and imagination with 2022 CBCA Book Week!

Please keep both Fr Justin and Gabe Driscoll in your prayers and thoughts following the recent passing of their brother, Tony.

We extend our deepest sympathy to Justin, Gabe and their families during this very difficult time.

St Brigid's Parents and Friends are organising our Pie Drive fundraiser. Please return order form and money to the office by 25th August, 2022. Thank you to the Parents and Friends for arranging. If you need an order form, please contact the office.

Learners at St Brigid's show bravery, collaboration, curiosity, perseverance and resilience.

We have high expectations for all learners and believe that all our children can learn, improve and succeed. We want our learners to know how to take charge of their own learning and to ‘know what to do when they don’t know what to do’. To support this we have identified five learning dispositions which are explicitly taught at Saint Brigid's.

We encourage all our families to continue to partner with us in developing our children to be brave, collaborative, curious, perseverant and resilient learners.

This term, we are very excited to welcome families back to our fortnightly assemblies in the Multipurpose Room. Each fortnight a class will present a small item at assembly (please refer to timetable below).

We look forward to seeing you at our assemblies!!

Please write your child’s name, class and lunch items on a brown paper bag, and enclose money. Any change will be taped to the paper bags. Please remember, two bags are required if having a dessert item as well.

Volunteers

This term we will re-introduce a roster to help prepare and serve lunches on each Friday. If you are available to help out on a Friday between 11.30am-1.00pm please contact the school office (valid Working With Children Check is required).

The children really enjoy hot lunches and this can only happen with the help of volunteers!
