About Us

A Message from the Principal

Welcome to the Brigidine Randwick website.   “Welcome” is an important word in the heritage of our school.   We have it from the female inspiration of all we do for our students; the great Irish woman, Brigid, whose hospitality and generosity in her monasteries and in her personal life are legendary. If you visit Brigidine College in Randwick you will meet young women, and the staff who care for them each day, who are generous and open hearted people still living the legacy given to them by Brigid and the Brigidine Sisters.

In keeping with this heritage, Brigidine Randwick is proudly a comprehensive Catholic secondary school for girls.   There is no entrance exam and like other schools administered by the Catholic Education Office, fees are kept as low as possible to ensure that any family can respond to our invitation to girls to receive a Brigidine education.
 
Everything about Brigidine Randwick works for excellence rather than elitism.   We have a history of outstanding academic results and a pastoral care of students that has made a big difference in the quality of life of many girls. The academic results are publicised each year in our  Annual Report, Myschool and the newspapers. The high quality relationships that we enjoy at Brigidine are the result of many kindnesses shown throughout each day by the staff to the girls and the girls to each other.    This combination of rigour and kindness makes Brigidine Randwick an authentic Catholic community.   As Jesus said to those who asked him about his dwelling place, “Come and See”
