Road Safety

By | Community, News | No Comments

Dear St Brigid’s Community,

This is an important reminder that road safety is a shared responsibility. Please discuss this notice with your family.
To increase the safety on Carters Road, we have been advised that the Traffic Police may increase their presence during peak times to enforce adherence to the road rules outside all schools on Carters Road, including no-parking zones.

How can you help?
As the Central Coast’s population increases, schools on Carters Road are experiencing congestion during the peak morning and afternoon periods. This is placing pressure on the surrounding road environments and our neighbours.

Specific to St Brigid’s, we ask parents/carers and families to consider the following:

  1. Have children walk to College or walk from a ‘drop off point’ outside of Carters Road.
  2. Drop off/pick up in designated areas as quickly as possible, while adhering to the 40km/ph speed limit. (Note: The grassed strip across from the College gates is a NO PARKING zone).
  3. Carpool for drop off/pick up where appropriate.
  4. Use pedestrian crossings at all times when moving to the opposite side of Carters Road.

Staff Car Park
All parents/carers are reminded that the Staff Carpark (third gate) is restricted to staff/contractors and deliveries. Families should not be using this space for drop off/pick-ups due to limited space and safety reasons.  

Please find attached information provided by the Central Coast Council.

Thank you for your support.

Lest We Forget

By | Community, News | No Comments

On Anzac Day our College community honoured the spirit of the ANZACs at Doyalson RSL. Together, our students and staff marched with pride, for the men and women that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

We would like to commend our College Captains, Tom and Laura, who represented with their inspiring speeches. They spoke with eloquence and respect. Their words resonated with everyone in attendance, reminding them of the dedication and bravery of those who served.

We are immensely proud of everyone who participated today.

Lest we Forget.

CCC Easter Festival Report

By | Community, News | No Comments

On Friday, March 22nd, St Brigid’s Youth Ministry hosted the first Combined Catholic Coasties event for 2024. We had 130 students from St Joseph’s, St Peter’s, Mackillop and St Brigid’s join us for the event.

The night followed an established format of Youth Ministry Events up here on the coast. We had a light meal together, followed by live music, games, Drama and Worship. Our focus was on Easter being Holy Week for Christians world-wide. The high was the respect and reverence shown during worship where Father Baby blessed all students and the families for Easter.

A big thank you to the teachers who supported this event, our student leaders who contributed and ran the event, the band, the entertainment crew and all the students and staff from the other three schools.

This event was a wonderful combination of fun, social interaction and spiritual enrichment in a safe environment.
