At St Brigid's we aim to provide a high quality education for our students within a caring and respectful environment, where every child will achieve.

We are an integrated Catholic full primary school for students who live in the Northern suburbs.  Our school crest is a modern logo recently designed from the symbol of the cross of the Brigidine Sisters who have been connected with our school since its inception in 1929 and its rebuilding in 1988. As such, the school is proud of its rich history and constantly seeks to further enhance its Catholic character.

Our motto: learning together with strength of character and gentleness of heart.

We aim to provide a high quality education for our students within a caring and respectful environment. We strongly believe that:

  • Every child can and will achieve.
  • All children are entitled to high-quality education and a balanced curriculum.
  • Collectively and individually we can make a difference to children’s learning.

The school has a rich ethnic diversity with our pupils being New Zealand European, Filipino, Chinese, Maori, Indian, Pasifika and other ethnicities. People communicate well with each other and the school enjoys strong support from parents and the wider Parish communities.
