Here at St Brigid’s we provide a safe and supportive faith filled environment for your children to learn and develop. We are committed to providing a welcoming, family atmosphere that fosters the Gospel values, student well-being & academic excellence.
An effective education requires open and honest communication. At St Brigid’s we acknowledge parents as the primary educators for their children and that the partnership between parents and our staff is crucial to the successful education and happiness of our children.
Our faith is central to all that we are. Following the way of St Brigid, we strive to see the spirit of Jesus in our actions and the actions of others. Our School Motto “Gentleness and Strength” encourages our whole school community to act with gentleness but with strength in what we know to be right.
As a community we are committed to working together to ensure that all children are able to develop to their full potential socially, academically and spiritually.
If I can be of assistance in anyway, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to sharing your child’s educational journey with you.

UPDATE ON COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS
As our school community continues to deal with the unprecedented threat of COVID-19, our priorities remain the health and safety of our students and staff as well as the continuity of learning for our students. I thank you all for your support, understanding and patience as we navigate throughout these uncharted times and look to what the future holds.
As previous correspondence has stated, the students are now on Pupil Free Days for this week with school holidays commencing on Friday 3rd April. During this week the teachers and staff will be working to prepare “Learning Online from Home” for Term 2, should this be the direction we are required to follow. Please be assured that we will continue regular communication with parents, carers and the community on any updates the evolve over the coming weeks.
During these times I understand that there are many different types of stresses put on people, whether it be increased anxiety, loss of jobs or financial difficulties. Please know that we as a school community and Diocese are here to help and support families in any way possible. If you require support or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the school or access any of our services for support. Attached to our newsletter is a fact sheet for support services available to our families and community either seeking help or just wanting more information about the health crisis.
Finally, I would like to say one last thank you to all the families of St Brigid’s for your support and understanding over the last few weeks. Thank you also to all the staff at St Brigid’s for your dedication and commitment to support learning continuity and a sense of normalcy for our students and families in far from normal times. I wish everyone a safe Easter break and ask everyone to remember the advice from the Queensland Government about staying home and social distancing during this time.
