Facilities

St Brigid’s College facilities provide a physical environment which allows our students to feel engaged, inspired, comfortable and safe. A large collection of buildings is contained within the school grounds and in recent years these have all undergone a major refurbishment. This includes the addition of several new buildings, rooms and storage areas. The most recent addition was a complete classroom wing built to accommodate the Year 7 cohort.

Commencing in 2017 a new technology wing will replace the existing Woodwork room and Year 12 Common Room and provide a two storey building housing Music, Woodwork, Textiles, Graphics, the Year 12 Common Room and the canteen.

The front of the college faces Robinson Street with main entrance and bike ramp entrance to that street. There is a vehicle entrance at the rear of the College accessed from Hamilton Street.

A Music Centre was built to accommodate music at St Brigid’s. It was named the Claver Music Centre, after well known music teacher, Mother Claver Tuite csb (see History) and officially opened by Sr Geraldine Sheedy on 3rd May 2000 on behalf of the Brigidine Sisters.

In June 2004 a new Multi-Purpose Stadium was officially opened by Bishop Peter Connors, Bishop of the Ballarat Diocese and Mr. Larry Burn, Director of the Catholic Education Office, Ballarat Diocese.
