Our school empowers students to organise themselves for daily school life by giving them the tools they need to succeed. Students are able to become independent, confident learners, which sets them up to navigate the complexity and challenges of the modern world.
The Houses of Brigidine College
The College houses of Aquinas, Brigid, Regina, Winifred, Xavier are named for figures of great importance to the Catholic faith, and after the Brigidine Sisters who themselves adopted these names. The house system flows through the College Pastoral Care structure and is a source of belonging, pride, and school spirit, along with a healthy dose of friendly rivalry and competition!
Students represent their House in every aspect of school life: through their participation in liturgy, social justice and fundraising, their academic effort and performance, their conduct and attendance, their participation and performance on the sporting field, the concert stage, and the wide range of activities offered at the College. In this way, the College houses enable Brigidine students to share their talents and gifts for the benefit for all.
Each year the College Houses compete for the inter-house Spirit Cup, which is named in honour of Sr. Sheelagh.
