Sacramental Program

Students at St Brendan’s prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation through the parish based sacramental programs. Information evenings are conducted by the Parish with the support of the staff of St Brendan’s school. Preparation for the Sacraments is undertaken in small groups which are facilitated by parent leaders.

Family Educator

At St Brendan's we are extremely lucky to have an exceptional Family Educator, Leonie Duck. The role of the Family Educator is to nurture strong and meaningful parish/parent/school relationships and to explore new models of supporting the spiritual, social and educational formation of families. 

It is a wide and varied role, based within the school and working closely with the Parish Priest. Initiatives undertaken by the Family Educator include: 
 - Talks on topics such as Cybersafety, Managing Anxiety and other topics of interest to parents.
 - Family Masses
 - Leading a Mini Vinnies group for students in Years 4, 5 and 6.  
 - Mental health initiatives in conjunction with the KidsMatter team
 - Sacramental gift workshops  
 - Outreach activities - making sandwiches and other edibles, toiletries bags and other items for people in need.
 - Tender Tales - storytime for pre-school age siblings    
 - Contemporary reflections for parents
 - Parent resource library 

The Family Educator is a key point of contact for support to families.
