JAPANESE STUDENT VISITORS | Updateこんにちは
Due to travel restrictions imposed by the local Board of Education in Japan, we will be unable to host our Japanese sister-school student visitors this year. Over the years we have enjoyed sharing our College and showcasing the Wimmera to our dear friends/extended family at Matsudo Kokusai High School and we look forward to being able to do that again in the future.

Premier's Reading Challenge has begun for Year 7 students and will end in September with a celebration and awards.
Year 7 students will be shown how to log on when there class visits the library but can obtain their username and password from Mrs O'Beirne at any time.
Number of books: 15
Number of books from the Challenge book list: 10 or more
Most of the books you read should be from the Challenge book lists. The PRC website can tell students if the book they are reading is on the list. The rest can be any book you choose. The Library is full of PRC books and are easily identified by a sticker on the spine.
You can read books on the book list for your year level or a level above and they'll count towards your Challenge total. You should check with your teachers or parents if you're not in year 9 or 10 and want to read a book from that list. This list includes titles for mature readers. You can read a book from a level below your year level if your teacher agrees. You still need to read the number of books for your year level to meet the Challenge.
You can also count the books you read for the MS Readathon in the Challenge. More information regarding the MS Readthon will be available in August.
Students can obtain St Brigid's College commendation points for the number of books they read. 10 books per semester = 20 commendation points
Any students not in Year 7 and wish to participate can contact Mrs O'Beirne in the Library and she will register them.

With our Athletics Carnival fast approaching we thought it was fitting to take a moment and celebrate former student, Daisy Sudholz who is making waves in some pretty big Track and Field events! Daisy has recently won two State Titles in the 1500m and 3000m at the Victorian Track and Field Championships and is now heading to Sydney at the end of March for the Nationals. Congratulations Daisy! We are so proud of you and your achievements and look forward to cheering you on for Nationals: Supplied. (Images of Daisy at her recent State wins)
