Academic Enrichment (GEORGE)
Education at St Brigid’s College values the student as an individual and we believe that all students should have the opportunity to excel in areas of interest or talent.
GEORGE is an enrichment program that offers over 100 Extra-Curricular and enrichment opportunities to stimulate, challenge and extend all students to reach their highest potential across a broad range of interest areas.
This is not a select entry program, students participate inclusively and voluntarily with the guidance and support of committed teachers, mentors, coordinators and peers.
GEORGE is an acronym for Great Enrichment Opportunities Really Good Experiences, and students participate in events such as workshops, conferences, excursions, performances, social justice activities, team events, clubs, extra-curricular classes, and online conferencing with industry experts and people who excel in their chosen field.
Students have the opportunity to participate in many competitions, both within the school and local community, and also in state, national and international competitions where they can push for excellence, gain valuable learning experiences outside of the classroom and broaden their understanding of the world.
Students are advised of GEORGE activities and opportunities via the GEORGE Board at school and through our online noticeboard. Parents can see what GEORGE opportunities are available on our Parent Access Module (PAM).
