A big thank you to our P&F and St Brigid’s community members who volunteered their time at the Steptoes BBQ Fundraiser on Saturday! Thank you also to those who called past and bought a sausage to support our school! The BBQ sales raised $189. Thank you also to Steptoes for supporting our growing school and donating $500.  

Due to larger numbers in Foundation next year and in an effort to reduce class sizes from Foundation - Year 6, next year we are moving from 5 classrooms to 6 classrooms. Class groupings have been finalised in preparation for step up day next week and no further changes will be made. I am very pleased to share with you that our class structure for 2023 is as follows:

Dear Members of our St Brigid’s Community, 

As we commence Week 8, we look forward to celebrating special events throughout the next four weeks including our Christmas Carols afternoon, Year 6 graduation, end of year Mass and other school based activities.

Next Tuesday 29th November, is Step up Day. On this day we will welcome our Foundation 2023 children and families to school along with children starting at St Brigid’s from years 1-6. This day also provides all levels with the opportunity to spend time in their 2023 classes.

Last Friday we welcomed grandparent’s and special people to our school. Our morning commenced with a beautiful Liturgy prepared by Therese and then our visitors attended classrooms to participate in activities followed by a special morning tea in our Library. Our morning was filled with smiles, laughter and happiness.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Take care and God bless,

Jayne Bosworth

We have now made the transition to Summer Uniform. Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct summer uniform. Children are able to wear sports uniform each Wednesday and on classroom nominated sports day as directed by your child’s classroom teacher.

As we are a SunSmart school, it is compulsory for children to wear a navy blue wide brim school hat in Terms 1 and 4.  

All of the timetabled events (to date) for the school year can be found on our school calendar which can be accessed through PAM and via this newsletter.
