Welcome to St Brigid's Catholic School


St. Brigid's Catholic School is a Kindergarten to Grade 6 co-educational School.

The school is situated on the banks of the Derwent at New Norfolk overlooking the river.   The 3 hectare site provides a picturesque setting with excellent facilities and outdoor learning areas.

St Brigid’s Catholic School opened in 1926 under the care of the Sisters of Charity. For the next 25 years the Sisters were to shape the form of Catholic Education in the Derwent Valley. The School initially catered for primary grades and then extended into secondary education for girls. In 1950 the Presentation Sisters assumed responsibility for St. Brigid's and very ably managed the School until 1993 when the first lay Principal was appointed.

The present school principal is Mr Stuart Kelly.

Progressive change, ongoing development and an attention to the Catholic culture and ethos of St Brigid's have been the corner stones of the school since its inception.

The current school enrolment is approximately 220 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Slightly more than half of the student population lives in New Norfolk whilst the remainder come from townships or farms in the surrounding areas.

Our School Motto, upon which the St. Brigid's Catholic School Vision and Mission Statement are based, is 'Virtue and Knowledge'.
