Principal Welcome


Welcome to St. Brigid’s Catholic Primary School. I extend this welcome as a member of a team dedicated to providing a friendly, safe, happy and caring environment.

Our vision is to create a modern, contemporary and innovative approach to learning that is purposeful and relevant to the lives of children and families today. We believe in partnerships in learning and fostering a nurturing atmosphere in which staff, parents and children work as a team to develop in the children the skills to meet life’s challenges with confidence, resilience and enthusiasm.

We are committed to ensuring success in the competencies of literacy and numeracy, as well as a knowledge and understanding of our ever changing world through inquiry learning from a Catholic world view, faith and life inquiry. We see ourselves as a community of life long learners and provide an environment that is challenging, stimulating and fosters creativity. As a part of St. Brigid’s school community your child will experience a supportive environment where our dedicated, professional staff encourages each student to feel happy and confident in developing positive self esteem.

St. Brigid’s is one of three schools in St. Michael’s Parish Berwick which is led by Father Jeff Kleynjans. We are active members of our Parish community, contributing to a wider community which encompasses families from Beaconsfield, Upper Beaconsfield, Officer and some parts of Berwick.

As the Principal of St. Brigid’s I look forward, with excitement, to the ongoing development of our school community.
