We are delighted you are considering Brigidine College for your daughter’s education.
As the only Brisbane Girls school in the Brigidine tradition, we understand what you
most want for your daughter – for her to be happy, independent, thoughtful of others, reliable and to have a meaningful life. At Brigidine College every staff member is committed to the holistic education of young women. Whilst our young women achieve exceptional academic results, we recognise that life is more than a school report and that it is through the pursuit of academic, spiritual, sporting and cultural opportunities, that she will flourish – learning how to participate, be brave and lead in a variety of different endeavours.
While we are a Catholic school, you and your family do not need to be Catholic to attend. Our College is non-selective, educating young women of all abilities and backgrounds to enable them to develop and walk their own path. Many of our families have mixed beliefs, but all believe in the value of our Catholic education and what it provides – academic rigour, educational pathways, social justice, cocurricular opportunities, respectful and inclusive community, small class sizes, expert teachers, and value-for-money.
Our young women are inspired to value learning, to be true to themselves and to exhibit the teachings of Christ and the Catholic faith. They are challenged to create a more just world and to live in Strength and Gentleness, our motto.
Likewise, our parents are encouraged to be active in our community and are valued for the role they play in shaping our young women into the women of today and tomorrow.
Brigidine College was established in 1929 and is a Kildare Ministries school in the Brigidine tradition. From our Celtic origins, the St Brigid’s Lamp of Learning is the sign of the light of Christ and the light of learning igniting the sense of hope and purpose that education brings.
At Brigidine, our young women live the Brigidine sisters’ motto – Strength and Gentleness. It serves them well for life.
