It is often said that teachers make a lasting impact on the lives of their students. In 2016, Brigidine College’s Program Leader in the Middle Years, Mrs Berni Sligar had known some of the Seniors for more than 12 years!
“I feel privileged to have watched them grow since Year 1 and to have been part of that” she said. “It’s sad to see them go but I proud of the memories we have shared.”
Their first contact was in the primary school next door at Holy Family but it didn’t stop there! As Mrs Sligar moved onto new challenges in the high school setting at Brigidine College and so too did the girls.
“Ms Sligar has such positive energy” Chiara said. “I will always remember her.”
In the classroom or beyond, good teachers bring out the best in their students. Akwany sums it up best when she reflects “Ms Sligar allowed me to be comfortable in my own skin.”
Who will the class of 2017 remember?
As the saying goes: “They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel.”
Our talented, dedicated staff at Brigidine College are not only celebrated on World Teachers’ Day but every day because they change lives.
Give your daughter the opportunity to flourish at Brigidine.
