An old adage supports that it takes a village to raise a child. During these uncertain times, with the migration to home based learning, this has become even more apparent. The community at Brigidine College Indooroopilly has united to ensure that Brigidine young women are provided the continued opportunity to grow in a nurturing environment.
Regardless of physical location, Brigidine staff are dedicated to ensuring that every student is a confident, adaptable learner via the Learning at Home program. The College has continued to connect students and teachers through collaborative online options, adhering to the regular College timetable.
Parent feedback has flowed in with praise for the cohesive online platform, dedicated staff and for assistance being readily available.
“I’m so impressed and in awe of how seamlessly Brigidine College has adapted to significant change in such a short period of time,” shared a parent.
Principal Brendan Cahill acknowledged that Learning at Home supports students to work effectively despite the home-based learning mode.
“Our students are close to 100% engaged, as they follow the normal timetable with Wellbeing, Formation and all subjects linking across the timetable,” said Mr Cahill.
“Teachers have harnessed innovative technology to allow real-time, authentic learning. They are engaging in each lesson with instructions, investigations, ready access to information and practicing for folio assessments,” added Mr Cahill.
Brigidine College has worked hard to ensure that all students, including its senior students in Years 11 and 12, remain connected.
“The shared success is due to the commitment by ‘our village’; staff, students and their families,” said Mr Cahill.
Whilst online learning has been positive, the College looks forward to the return of face to face teaching as soon as practicable.
