School celebrates values
AT ST BRIGID’S Primary, Kyogle, Catholic Schools Week is always celebrated with vigour, and this year was no exception.
The highlight of the day for everyone was the meaningful and moving liturgy which linked Catholic school life with the value we place on our families, with unique reference given to our mothers and grandfriends. Many of the children played a part in making this liturgy a very special event for the visitors to the school through a re-enactment of the Gospel and a beautifully performed song for all the mums. There was not a dry eye in the house.
The children, teachers and community enjoyed their shared lunch in the grounds of St Brigid’s, soaking up the warmth of the North Coast autumn sunshine before the activities started again.
The students took great pride in showing their visitors around their newly refurbished school and classrooms. Many of the grandfriends were even able to have a go on the interactive whiteboards and see how the children use the netbooks to assist in their learning.
The dedicated teachers at St Brigid’s had planned many exciting learning activities for the afternoon for the students such as writing poems about their teachers, interactive quiz competitions using the ActivoteÖ student response system and challenging each other in online games and activities on the netbooks and interactive whiteboards.
The busy day was enjoyed by all at the school and once again gave us the opportunity to reflect on how fortunate we are to be part of Catholic education.
