In 2020, we are focused on achieving our learning goals in the areas of flexible learning spaces, assessing effectively to improve teaching and learning outcomes and building stronger community partnerships. We encourage you to book an appointment with our Principal, Tony Hunter, Assistant Principal, Jan Condon or a member of our passionate and committed staff to discuss the learning opportunities and faith formation of students in our Kyogle community.

St Brigid’s Christmas Pageant
As the year draws near to an end, we are busy celebrating many events and counting down the days until Christmas. It is our tradition to retell the Christmas Story, remembering the birth of Jesus and the significance of Christ in our lives.
Our Christmas Pageant was presented outdoors by the Year 6 students who took the lead roles. They were supported by the other students from Kinder to Year 5, who sang, danced and moved to the Christmas songs. Our star performer was Harvey Johnston, who stole the show as baby Jesus.
We extend a huge vote of congratulations to Ruhara Mapabandara from St Brigid’s Primary School, Kyogle, who was presented with the ICAS Medal for Year 5 Spelling from all other entrants in this international competition. This is an outstanding achievement and reflects the effort and commitment that Ruhara dedicates to her studies. This is her second ICAS Medal having received the Mathematics Medal in 2017.
