About the School

StBrigidsSt. Brigid’s Primary School opened in January 2010.  St. Brigid’s is one of three Catholic primary schools in the Parish of St. Michael’s Berwick and is situated in Bayview Road in the picturesque surroundings of Officer.  As a Catholic school we provide education in faith and encourage our families to work in partnership with our school and Parish.  Our Parish Priest, Father Jeff Kleynjans, is a vital member of our school community.  His leadership, pastoral care, enthusiasm, support and commitment are evident at St. Brigid’s Primary School.  

We believe in the education of the whole person, providing a happy, caring and stimulating environment enabling each person to be a contributing member of society.  We aim to assist our students to become resilient, independent, life-long learners who develop an inquiring mind and who value education and the difference it will make in their lives and the lives of others.  

Our learning environment ,which is open and flexible, embraces the learning strategies of intervention, communication and collaboration.  The indoor and outdoor flexible spaces allow for whole group discussion and direction, small group work areas as well as space for individual learning to take place.  At Brigid’s Primary School the curriculum is planned carefully to ensure that it caters for the diverse needs of our community.  

Great emphasis is placed on literacy and numeracy proficiency while using a whole school approach for teaching integrated units of work.  We have a dedicated coordinator in this area on staff. Information Communication Technology is integrated into the children’s daily learning, through the use of the school’s extensive wireless computer network and technologies, with access to multiple computers and laptops in each learning area.  

There are specialist teachers in Creative Arts, Music, Japanese and Physical Education and a well resourced library.   A specialist music program is available and many extended programs are also offered to the students.  Our facilities include a large multipurpose hall for assemblies and celebrations, a parents’ retreat, canteen, oval, adventure playground and extensive landscaped gardens.  Before and After School Care is provided by C3 Kids.
