The African proverb says “it takes a village to raise a child” that can also be said for the community spirit that exists here at Brigidine College. Our students, parents, staff and alumni come together in many ways to ensure the Brigidine community spirit is present in everyone’s lives.
Parents and Friends
All parents and friends of the College are welcome to be involved in the Parents & Friends community, it’s a wonderful way to meet other parents, College staff, keep in touch with what is happening at the College and be an active part of the school community.
The P&F works in close collaboration with the College and in the past have held events such as:
Annual Welcome Cocktail Party – Traditionally held at the beginning of the year.
Trivia Night– Normally held in term 3, our major fundraising event to bring school projects to life that benefit every student, for example the mini bus, library renovation, gym updates and outdoor furniture.
Luncheon or Supper Groups – Meet socially with other parents regularly
Parents may contact members of the P and F committee (Details of P&F meetings and events are also contained on the College portal)
When a student or staff member leaves Brigidine College St Ives they automatically become a member of our alumni community.
Our Alumni staff provide a variety of services that help our alumni maintain connections to the College, by organizing social events, mentors for the current students, forums to form new friendships and business relationships with people of similar background and also publish articles for The Bridge magazine.

Over the years the Brigidine College St Ives Archive collection has grown and developed with the changing and expanding Brigidine community. The collection spans the rich history of the Brigidine tradition, the founding Father and sisters from Ireland, construction and development of the buildings, the enrolled and graduated students, and the various events and people that have shaped the school and its values.The collection includes:
Administration records, Audio and audio visual items, Ephemera, Memorabilia, Publications, Photographs, Plans, Uniforms.
We are committed to capturing and preserving the memories and history of the past members of the Brigidine Community and invite you to share your story with us. For more information, click here.
