SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

There are many opportunities for students to be involved in social justice formation at Brigidine College.

  • Justice and Democracy (J and D) meets every Friday at lunchtime and explores what a just and free world means. At meetings, students educate themselves about social justice issues and then set out to educate the school community. Beyond high school, past pupils can continue their connection through the group, Brigid’s Women.
  • Brigidine College’s St Vincent de Paul Committee meets fortnightly and raises funds and conducts drives to primarily support the Inala St Vincent de Paul Family Day Centre.
  • Brigidine College’s Interact Club is a service group which meets fortnightly. Its various activities help the community, be it the College, local or wider world communities. All students are invited to join and leadership positions are open to all year levels. See more details in the Cocurricular Booklet.
