Our canteen operates every Friday, ordering is done through the Qkr! App. We provide a wide range of delicious food, some of which is made in house by our talented cook. Our canteen is gold accredited, as we provide nutritious food under the guidance of the Tasmanian Canteen Association.
Uniforms can be ordered via the Qkr! app which can be downloaded to smartphones and computers.
Changeovers of uniform are advertised via the school newsletter.

Our summer uniform is worn in Terms One and Four. The uniform consists of a summer dress and navy jumper for girls and short sleeve blue shirt and navy shorts for boys. Both sexes wear a navy ‘v’ necked jumper. Hats are also worn in summer.
Our winter uniform is worn in Terms Two and Three. This uniform consists of a summer tunic with a long sleeve shirt under it along with stockings. Boys wear long sleeve shirts and navy trousers. All students are required to wear ties.
Our sports uniform consists of a polo shirt, rugby top and track pants during winter time.
In summer time the only change to this uniform is that boys wear microfibre shorts instead of the trackpants and girls have the option of either the microfibre shorts or a skort.
Our Kindergarten students wear our sports uniform all through the year.
We offer Parent Teacher interviews in Term One each year to review the child's start. Another Parent Teacher interview after our mid-year reports are sent home. Our teachers are always willing to discuss your child’s progress. If you wish to organise a meeting please contact your child’s classroom teacher directly.
Parent Teacher online bookings will found under this tab at the appropriate time.
At St Brigid’s we offer a broad range of extra-curricular sporting opportunities for our students. Our students are involved in the Burnie Primary Schools Netball Roster held each Saturday morning for Grades 2 to 6 during the Winter and Spring Roster. A Football roster is held each Friday afternoon for our grade five and six students to play against a number of schools in Burnie. The school has two cricket teams and opportunities to play hockey. We also provide opportunities throughout the year for our students to also participate in weekend Netball and Basketball Tournaments where our teams play against various schools along the North West Coast. On Thursdays throughout Terms One and Four, all of our Grade Four, Five and Six students have opportunities to participate in the following clinics: golf, gymnastics, basketball, swimming to survive, lawn bowls, squash, tennis and soccer. We are passionate about providing our students with opportunities to experience a wide range of athletic and recreational experiences to challenge our students physically, socially and emotionally.
Swimming, Athletics, Cross Country and Surf Carnivals
Throughout the year St Brigid’s students participate in many school and inter-school sporting carnivals. In first term our students from Grade Three to Six participate in a school swimming and water safety program, including a carnival, while our Early Childhood students are provided school swimming lessons held over two weeks locally. Our school cross country is held in Term Two where the students from Kindergarten to Grade Six all compete in a fun and authentic cross country course through the local river track. In Term Four, all our students participate in a range of events for our annual athletics carnival. There are a number of track and field events ran throughout the day, this encourages participation and cooperation among our school community. Selected students are offered to also participate in inter-school cross country, athletics and swimming and compete against other students from schools across the north-west coast. Our school also provides opportunity for our students to participate in a Surf Carnival at Boat Harbour Beach for students in Grade Three to Six.
