Welcome to St Brigid's Catholic School Evanston

St Brigid's to Xavier College

Xavier College Evanston Campus from 2023

The South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) in November 2021 approved the amalgamation of St Brigid’s Catholic School with Xavier College to form Xavier College R-12. 

Reception to Year 6 will be located at our Evanston Campus and Years 7 to 12 at our existing Gawler Belt Campus from the start of the 2023 school year.

In 2022 work is continuing on the preparations for the amalgamation. This will provide a seamless pathway from Primary to Secondary Education and unique educational opportunities, spanning early years, primary and secondary education.

School Fees for 2023

We are pleased to inform our school families that there will be no increase in school fees for the 2023 school year.

As South Australians continue to feel the impact of COVID-19, Catholic Education SA has announced it will freeze fees at its 86 Diocesan schools for the 2023 school year.

“These decisions are part of our continued COVID 19 response as we seek to support families at a time when they are being impacted by rising costs and inflation,” says Dr Neil McGoran, Director, Catholic Education SA.

Since 2019, Catholic Education SA has been implementing the Making Catholic Education More Affordable Initiative to ensure our schools are accessible to any family who wants their child to have a Catholic education.

Dr Neil McGoran said the fee-freeze would not impact the quality of education.

“We’re committed to keeping school fees as low as possible and ensuring a Catholic education is affordable and accessible to all.”

In addition to the fee-freeze, further fee remissions are available to any family who is struggling to pay school fees due to financial pressures. Families should contact our bursar Jayne Clarke for more information.

Principals Welcome

Thank you for expressing an interest in St Brigid's Catholic School.

Choosing the right school for your daughter or son is a major decision. I hope this visit to our website will satisfy your initial interest and encourage you to contact the school for further information. Additionally, you can make an appointment for a Principal's Tour with myself. 

At St Brigid's we hope that our students will question and search, explore and discover as they become self-motivated learners who will view with critical eyes the society in which they live. This process, we trust, will allow them to contribute to the growth of loving relationships with others in creating to a more just, peaceful and forgiving society.
