Changes and news around St Brigid's in 2017
THERE'S a lot of changes happening around the school that will affect teachers and staff at St Brigid's Primary School in Kyogle.
During the Centennial Year in 2014, an idea was born to create a 'Reflection Garden' for staff and students to take time out and reflect on their day.
Thanks to a hard working committee and a fantastic landscaper the Reflection Garden will soon be officially opened.
Another big change is the swap of times for lunch and recess. Recess has now become morning tea at 10.40am and lunch is at 12.50pm.
We have welcomed 16 new Kindergarten students and several new staff members.
Occupational therapists, India and Paivi and indigenous education worker, Dane Walker have joined the team.
Also speech therapist Jess Rixon will become a regular member of staff and we have Erin Anderson joining permanently.
Congratulations school captain Oliver Rixon, who won the Minor Sportsperson of the Year Award at the Kyogle Australia Day Award.
Some of his achievements in 2016 included being the 11-year-old boy champion in athletics at St. Brigid's, and outside of school Oliver received Kyogle Soccer Club's Perpetual Award.
He was also accepted into the International Academy Program at Southern Cross Football Centre for 2017.
