Welcome to St Brigid’s School

Learning together with strength of character and gentleness of heart

We are a Catholic multicultural school in the centre of Johnsonville. We believe that every child is unique and that all children bring gifts and talents that shape who they are and enable them to reach their potential.
We have a very collaborative and caring staff who work together to ensure that our children get the very best educational programmes and opportunities.
We value the partnership with parents and caregivers and encourage them to contribute to the growth of the school.

We have a passion for maths and science, and are particularly strong in environmental science where children are given lots of opportunity to grow their understanding about the world around them in practical ways.

We offer a range of music, cultural, leadership and sporting activities. All of this is underpinned by our Catholic Character which teaches children to respect, forgive and show kindness in their words and actions.
Our vision “to learn together with strength of character and gentleness of heart” helps us grow children who are future focused, kind-hearted and lifelong learners.

We warmly invite you to contact us to find out more, or to arrange a visit to experience St Brigid’s School.  We look forward to meeting you.
