The Lamp of Learning is a symbol in all Brigidine Schools across Australia. Its light shines upon knowledge, awakens understandings, opens new possibilities and challenges ideas. Our College is a place where students warmly embrace the love of learning and the sense of purpose. This enriching legacy left to us by the Sisters, provides for us the responsibility to be the living ethos and celebration of the core Brigidine values:

* be faithful to our Catholic Heritage

Mr Brendan Cahill

College Principal





Established in 1929, Brigidine College is an all girls' Catholic secondary college; a centre of faith and learning where strong life-giving relationships empower our young women with confidence and hope.

The College has a proven record of strong academic achievements and a range of curriculum pathways to meet the diverse learning needs and career aspirations of students.  Integrated eLearning enables students to discern and critique how best to learn and create for the future.

The exciting new Middle Years Learning Centre provides young adolescent girls with integrated learning options that deepen and enrich literacy, numeracy and digital skills across all areas.

Extensive cocurricular opportunities, integrated wellbeing and social justice programs support and challenge students on their learning journeys to become strong and gentle women in the tradition of the Brigidine Sisters.

You are invited to visit Brigidine College, to see for yourself the opportunities available for your daughter.

Learning takes many forms and involvement in activities beyond the classroom can build resilience, broaden potential and balance the educational experience.

Students can be involved in social justice activities, outreach projects and community service groups, which not only raise awareness but support and build connections with the broader community in practical ways.

The extensive sporting, cultural and higher order thinking programs also provide inclusive options to develop individual skills, teamwork and pathways to excellence at school and beyond.

* STEM activities offer exciting opportunities and challenges for girls interested in Science, Engineering and Maths.
* Strong community links: The College is the venue for the Australian Girls' Choir (AGC). We have links with the local Interact chapter, St Vincent de Paul and other community service groups. Our students have access to the equipment and expertise of the Centenary Rowing Club, which enables our athletes to row under the Brigidine banner.
We follow the example of St Brigid, a woman of vision and courage, who actively challenged the social, political and cultural structures of her time.

We commit ourselves to the education and empowerment of young women within the framework and challenge of Catholic philosophy.

In living our vision, we will:
Be faithful to our relationship with God in Jesus Christ.
Engender a love of learning, hope and a sense of purpose.
Celebrate the uniqueness of each person in our community through justice and service.
Welcome all people in the Brigidine tradition of 'Strength and Gentleness'.

Brigidine College, Indooroopilly – a message from the Principal, Mr Brendan Cahill

I believe in inspiring women to be the difference. A Brigidine education is one of social and ethical responsibility. In 2018, I have challenged of our students to be agents of Hope for their community and for the broader world. Through a Learning Paradigm that emphasises reflective practice, collaborative learning and effective communication, students become global citizens for the 21st century.

As preparations are made for the 90th anniversary in 2019, the college is also embarking on a transformative building program over the next three years. The Science/Technology Hub will extend  STEM and digital learning opportunities and connect stimulating environments where the Arts and Digital spaces allow for students to ‘create’ a future well beyond their time at school.

Enjoy this reflection from one of our Brigidine dads:

My daughter just graduated from Brigidine College and I wanted to pass on my thanks to the Principal Mr Brendan Cahill and every member of staff. From my perspective Brigidine College is without peer. It provided my daughter a caring and nurturing environment during her formative years for which I will always be deeply grateful. The school's values are an integral part of her life now. From my daughter’s perspective ...well, she simply loved everything about the school, its teachers and her fellow students. It was as much family as it was an education and it definitely inspired both her mind and spirit. Brigidine College is an amazing place. Thank you for the incredible job you're doing.

Parent of recent Year 12 Graduate

Dr Amanda Rojek, 2012 Rhodes Scholar and Senior of 2003, continues to inspire a new generation of young Brigidine women. On her most recent visit, she said:

"You choose your future.  It doesn't matter what OP you get.  You are already incredible (Brigidine) women who will change the world.  Just work hard and follow your passions."
