Northern NSW Regional FUTSAL Titles

By | News | No Comments
St Brigids sent three teams to the Northern NSW Regional FUTSAL Titles in Newcastle today.
Our U14s came up against some tough opponents in the early rounds but improved during the tournament to earn a creditable draw against Bishop Tyrell, as his former school, this result put a smile on Mr Lynch’s face.
The 16B’s progressed to the semi-finals with solid performances in their pool games. Again, with more court time, they improved in confidence and cohesion. Finishing second in their pool, they played our 16A’s in the semi.
16A’s outplayed all schools in their pool, finishing undefeated and top of their group.
The final was always going to be tough against former National champions, St Pius. While it is fair to say the boys were outclassed, they learnt so much from the experience.
This team has now earned their place in the Northern NSW State Titles to be played in Maitland next month.
The sportsmanship and general behaviour of the boys, as well as their results, deserve high recognition. First time in the tournament, the Newcastle schools now know about St Brigids. Thank you for a great day lads. Special appreciation to Ms Harvey, one of our practicum teachers, who accompanied our teams today and provided great assistance to me.

Year 12 Construction

By | News | No Comments

The LP4 space has always shared a wall in a classroom with the Table Saw room and the noise would travel straight through the roller door. The Y12 Construction class needed to complete a Wall frame as part of their Competencies, they decided to take over the project. The 5 Year 12 students had to take on the role of a carpenter and measure\quote for the project. They sourced their supplies from Carrols Timbers, placed the order and when the materials arrived they met the truck and stored the materials safely on the site.

Students constructed the wall in the workshop, moved it into place Fixed it to the existing structure with 1-2mm gap and then sheeted the wall, fixing it with architraves.

Well Done!

Dear Parents and Carers

It is with delight that I share with you some of the accomplishments of our recently graduated HSC students. To date we have heard of five students who have been offered unconditional entry to university to such courses as Education, Arts/Engineering, Business/Law, Civil Engineering as well as one student who earned a $2000 scholarship to the University of Newcastle. For these students the ATAR and the results of the HSC do not matter.  We are also aware of two students who have attained apprenticeships without their HSC results being necessary.

It is timely to remind those students particularly in Year 11 and 12 2020 that working steadily across the two years provides the basis upon which recommendations for courses and employment can be made.

This is cause for celebration and congratulations to our graduating class of 2019.

We will update you as information comes to hand.

Kind regards

Julie Terry

College Principal
