Our school environment is welcoming, happy and inclusive. Your child’s education at St Brigid’s School begins with their emotional wellbeing and happiness. A happy and positive experience at primary school lays down essential lifelong foundations.

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. Our vision, “Learning together with strength of character and gentleness of heart” helps us grow children who are future focused, kind-hearted and lifelong learners.

We are a Catholic multicultural school in the centre of Johnsonville, Wellington and have a maximum roll of 330 students. Our programmes of learning are enriching and innovative, designed to challenge, inspire and enjoy. 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 collaborative and caring staff work together to ensure that our children get the very best educational programmes and opportunities. We value partnership with whānau and encourage them to contribute to the growth of the school.

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.
