School

Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.

Jacques Barzun

All our staff members at St Brigid’s Catholic Primary School are valuable, and we would like to take this opportunity to recognise everything that they do and to thank them for going the extra mile for our students.

Bushfire At Risk Register School

Each day, the Bureau of Meteorology provides a Fire Danger Rating for each weather district in Victoria. Code Red is the highest level of rating in Victoria and it signifies the worst conditions for grass fires or bushfires. A Code Red day will be called no later than 1.00pm the day before, however a Code Red can be called a number of days in advance. Our school is on the Bushfire at Risk Register (BARR school) therefore will close on Code Red days. Staff and families will be advised as soon as a Code Red Day is declared. No staff or students may be on the school premise on a Code Red Day.

For more information see this link for Code Red Days.
