Lord the Giver of Life, help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts,
To promote the dignity and value of all human life.
Bless us with the courage to defend all life.
Bless us with the strength to respect all people, so that we may truly follow the call of Jesus to be neighbour to others.
May we answer your call to treat all as we wish to be treated and to promote the healing of all, especially those most vulnerable.
We ask this in the name of Jesus.
Amen

Learning at Home

Over recent days as we settle into the Teaching and Learning at Home, I am reminded of what we do to provide some of the very best opportunities for our young women. “ . . . as Brigidine College aims to grow self-aware, aspirating and talented young people, we also provide young women with outstanding opportunities, so they ultimately know themselves and are able to become a woman who is confident and certain about her direction and purpose in life.”

With the range of online opportunities available for all students, I am immensely proud of the effort families, students and staff have been giving and sharing during these challenging times. With an excellent I.T. platform and ready engagement, our students are thriving and connecting in positive and meaningful ways. Congratulations to everyone involved in the planning, engagement and operationalising our core work for educating young people to continue.

The College will continue to communicate with families and staff as we enter the second week of Learning at Home. Please remain engaged and attentive to your daughter’s needs and how we can continue to work together and achieve strong learning outcomes.

ANZAC Day 2020

Brigidine College commemorates the important place ANZAC has in our community each year. ANZAC Day within the national calendar is for many people a critical time to reflect and give thanks for the many opportunities we have as country.

With the ANZAC ceremonies cancelled this year due to COVID-19, students are reminded of the difficulties placed on all of us through war and how through prayer and dialogue we are a hopeful people, searching and working for peace. The risen Christ said to the apostles ‘peace be with you’ as they tried to understand what their lives would hold following the events over Easter. Our community is also working for peace in our relationships, in our learning and how we continue to be an inclusive school for all. ANZAC Day provides a glimpse into what is often referred to as the ‘Spirit of Australia’. Let us continue to share our story with everyone we encounter on our journey. Please enjoy this ANZAC video as we pause tomorrow.

They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them. Lest we forget.

Brendan Cahill
Principal
