St Brigid’s Primary School, Middle Swan was established in 1902 by the Sisters of Mercy to provide a Catholic education to the children of the Midland, Middle Swan and surrounding areas. In 2017, St Brigid’s is a double stream co- educational school catering for 464 students from Kindergarten to Year Six. St Brigid’s Primary School has been an integral part of Catholic education in the Midland region since 1902 and at its present site in Middle Swan for the past 22 years.
We value the wonderful community spirit and pastoral care which permeates all aspects of our school life. It is within this nurturing environment our Parish Priest, parishioners, staff, parents, carers and students work collaboratively to maintain our Catholic practice and deliver a lifelong love of learning.
The school staff and parish enjoy a strong relationship and work closely with the School Board and Parents and Friend’s Association to create a positive and supportive Catholic community.
While Literacy and Numeracy remain the schools focus, the school is highly committed in ensuring that students are provided with opportunities to participate in a range of curriculum areas such as Music, Italian, Physical Education, Choir, Catholic Performing Arts Dance Troupe, Breakfast Club and afterschool clubs such as Netball and Orienteering.
We believe that a Catholic school is a Christian community with a common vision which is centered on the person of Jesus and His teachings. Christian values such as respect, concern, care, compassion and forgiveness are seen in the relationships among all who make up the school community – students, staff, parents and parish. It is a place where staff and students participate in the sacramental and liturgical life of the school and parish.
