Samaritan Sports Stadium and Mackillop Art Theatre
We are very fortunate to have a multi-use facility here at St Brigid's. An Arts Theatre complete with a stage, professional lighting and sound system. Throughout the year we have the pleasure of listening to concerts held by our Instrumental Students, Whole School Masses, Assemblies as well as end of year Christmas Concerts. Our student ICT team play an active roll in the running of the various productions.
It is also a Sports Stadium, complete with Basketball rings, Rock climbing wall and multiple court markings for various sports.
The 'SAMMAT' building is a vital part of St Brigid's School life. Its multiple uses provide a variety of possibilities to staff and students alike.
We take pride knowing that many members of the local community have enjoyed the use of our facility, please click here for more information on how to hire for your next event.
We are very fortunate with the space and quality of the grounds students have available to them.
Recently we have undergone new redevelopment of the school grounds, creating a new nature play area to encourage out door discovery. A new village green play area for our junior students and an oval for our middle and senior students.
There are outdoor play courts for basketball, plus a courtyard for socializing or just sitting in the shade.
More is planned in the near future for our Reception—Year 1 students which we are incredibly excited for.
The Resource Centre almost exclusively houses a collection of big books. junior and upper primary fiction and non fiction books, readers and lexiles, staff reference, kits, games, AV and equipment for all subject areas and a parent library.
The Librarian supports and facilitates the best use of the Resource Centre. Classes visit for regular weekly borrowing, in a research block or as a major focus for a term. Our facilities cater for indiviual study and a creative space for groups. It is a bright and comfortable space for a great read.
