Catholic Education

Our College operates within the multicultural and multi-faith environment of contemporary rural Australian society. We are proud of our Catholic heritage, and believe we are specially called to live out and promote the Gospel within our community. Enrolment at St Brigid’s College is an invitation to “come and see” in the spirit of the Gospel invitation of Jesus, within the framework of our Catholic faith and our Brigidine values.

The Religious Education experience at St Brigid’s College is not just a strong part of our curriculum, but entrenched in our whole school culture and community, which aims to develop faith-literate young people who: understand and appreciate religious values; are positive about life; have a sense of their own worth and of their contribution to the world; and are able to apply the Gospel values they have acquired, in the context in which they live and work.

At a curriculum level, our Religious Education program follows the Awakenings Guidelines mandated for use in Catholic schools in the Ballarat Diocese. Students participate in Religious Education classes from Years 7 – 11. Our curriculum strands of study cover Christian Prayer, Sacraments, Religion and Society, God, Christian Life, Jesus Christ, Scripture and Church.
