Avon Valley Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

AT St Brigid’s Col­lege, the achieve­ments of stu­dents con­tinue in and be­yond the class­room and high­light the di­ver­sity of the aca­demic and co-cur­ric­u­lar in­volve­ment they are able to par­tic­i­pate in, says prin­ci­pal Dr Amelia Tof­foli.

“The 2014 re­sults were very pleas­ing, with three Cur­ricu­lum Coun­cil Awards, a 100 per cent grad­u­a­tion rate and all 40 stu­dents ap­ply­ing for uni­ver­sity en­trance gain­ing an of­fer – 27 for their first pref­er­ence,” she said.

“The col­lege en­rich­ment pro­gram Al­tiora con­tin­ues to grow and pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for aca­demic ex­cel­lence in the se­nior school, with sim­i­lar pro­grams planned for the mid­dle and ju­nior school in 2015.

“Thanks to a grant re­ceived from Bendigo Bank, our ro­bot­ics pro­grams have ex­panded, with the ad­di­tion of a robo club and the pos­si­bil­ity of in­clud­ing ro­bot­ics into the cur­ricu­lum.”
