Brigidine’s house system promotes a sense of belonging and community for all the students and contributes to their wellbeing and care whilst at College.
Upon starting at Brigidine, a student joins one of six Houses that becomes her family at school. Houses are led by an experienced and caring Pastoral Leader and include students as well as staff. Each student belongs to a Home Room within their House, which is led by a Home Room teacher. The Home Room teacher is always the first point of contact for parents regarding any pastoral issues relating to their daughters.
Students meet with their Home Room for 20 minutes each morning before other classes begin. Home Room is an important time of the day for our students as they can attend to day-to-day administration and pastoral care issues. Each Home Room consists of students from Years 7-12, so every year level engages and interacts regularly at Brigidine. This builds a connection between staff and students, contributing to the settled and inclusive environment for learning that is characteristic of the College. Years 11 and 12 students serve as role models in each Home Room group.
