Brigidine College – There is a spirit in this school worth experiencing

At Brigidine College our focus is on the holistic education of girls. The College is non-selective and proudly educates girls of varying abilities, enabling them to develop and realise their opportunities.

This is a school where girls can be themselves, as glorious as that is. They can laugh, cry, yell out loud, work hard or run around and be a little foolish in the playground, on the stage or at their carnivals. They don’t have to impress everyone; just learn how to be themselves. And while they are learning how to be themselves, they are in an environment that supports their growth, develops their resilience, allows them to make mistakes and helps them understand and develop the solution.

At Brigidine, the girls understand that they are part of a community of learners where collaboration among students and teachers is paramount, where risk is encouraged and both failure and success have their place in the learning continuum.

The diversity of the curriculum at Brigidine allows girls to grow in understanding across the sciences and technologies, mathematics, languages and the creative and performing arts to name a few. The diversity of their study choices at universities reflects the variety of curriculum opportunities that have allowed them to pursue their passions. Opportunities also abound beyond the curriculum in music, sport, Duke of Edinburgh Award, performing arts, social justice and service. Successful and valued Brigidine women are found in every industry and corner of the globe, making their mark.

Brigidine girls are taught leadership skills and are provided with opportunities to lead from the time they arrive. They are inspired to value learning, to be true to
themselves and to honour their spiritual heritage. They are challenged to act in the world with “strength and gentleness”, our treasured motto.
