Our aim

Our background

We aim to provide a high quality education for our students within a caring and respectful environment. We strongly believe that:

  • Every child can and will achieve.
  • All children are entitled to high-quality education and a balanced curriculum.
  • Collectively and individually we can make a difference to children’s learning.
We are an integrated Catholic full primary school for students
who live in the Northern suburbs and we have a close association
with the St Francis of Assisi Parish, Ohariu which encompasses our 3 local churches:
St Peter & Paul’s, Johnsonville, St Andrew’sNewlands, and St Benedict’s, Khandallah.
St Brigid's logoOur school crest is a modern logo recently designed from the symbol of
the cross of the Brigidine Sisters who have been connected with our school since its inception in 1929 and its rebuilding in 1988. As such, the school is proud of its rich history and constantly seeks to further enhance it Catholic character.
