Leadership & Administration
Principal (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have a passion for wellbeing and authentic community connections. I love coming to school each day and have been connected to the St Brigid’s family for over 10 years. Our strong bonds are what makes us special! Each child and family member are valued for what they bring to our community. We support, inspire and nurture the growth in each other, developing and expressing our unique gifts and talents. I am passionate about empowering young people to take action in our world and am blessed by being able to work alongside many amazing students in my role as Mini Vinnies Social Justice leader. When I am not at school I love family time, playing golf or spending time in nature. I also love time with our family pets, our dog, cats, goats, snake and lizards.
Deputy Principal, Religious Education Leader and Literacy Leader (Email: email@example.com)
Hi I’m Keena and I have the privilege of working with the youngest at St. Brigid’s; the Foundation year children. Every day in our learning space is an adventure where the children use their natural curiosity to explore, ask questions, have fun, make new friends and develop their enthusiasm and love for learning. It’s exciting to see these little ones grow and learn. St. Brigid’s is a great example of a community that cares for and about children. As we are a small school we all know and look out for each other.
When I am not at St. Brigid’s I love to spend time with my family and friends. I play and coach netball and enjoy reading and going to the movies.

Drop in and say hi anytime.
Grade Prep Teachers
Foundation / Prep Teacher (Email: email@example.com)
Hi everyone, I’m Alex Williams and this year I am new to St Brigid’s as the Prep teacher. I have been a Prep teacher for a number of years and I cherish watching young minds grow and learn in their first year of primary school. I am looking forward to having such a great year with everyone in the St Brigid’s parish community.
Grade 1/2 Teachers
Junior Classroom Teacher (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
I love working at St Brigid’s because every day I get to be part of a collaborative, supportive and inclusive learning community. I love that I get to provide my students with rich, engaging and relevant learning opportunities that promote self-motivation, curiosity, collaboration, and resilience.
There is also such a strong sense of community throughout the school, which instantly made me and anyone else who enters feel welcome.
Outside of work and school, I enjoy spending time with my friends over coffee and long brunches, going to the gym, watching football and playing netball.
Junior School Classroom Teacher (Email: email@example.com)
I love working at St Brigid’s because it is an inclusive, collaborative and supportive learning community. As a small school it is fantastic to see the strong connections between parents, students, teachers and the wider community. I enjoy working in the Seniors and seeing the students grow as leaders and as people. They are able to engage in hands on learning tasks that ignites their curiosity and creativity for the world around them. Outside of school I enjoy watching my beloved Bombers play footy, going to the beach, playing netball and hanging out with my friends and family.
Junior School Classroom Teacher (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
St Brigid’s Primary has such a wonderful community and I love being a part of it. The friendly faces that I get to see every day make it such a happy place to be. The staff’s dedication to learning, and the student’s willingness to try new things, make it a creative and energetic learning environment. I have only been teaching here for a short time, but I look forward to putting many years into the school. I enjoy being in the outdoors, hiking and exploring, and the school location means that it’s only a very short drive to exploring state parks and with playground views of Mt Macedon, I can’t think of a better place to teach.
Grade 3/4 Teachers
Middle School Classroom Teacher (Email email@example.com)
I take my job very seriously, but despite my great effort and my good intentions, I sometimes fumble. I was not a perfect student and I don’t expect my students to be. We all learn differently. I encourage those I teach to help me understand how they learn best. I pride myself on knowing an individual’s dreams inside and outside of school. I try to connect them, for that is where one will find the true joy in learning. I have completed teaching rounds in Western Australia and the Northern Territory, with a great love for Indigenous culture and life. I live with my partner Dev and our daughter August who is 3. Some of my very favorite activities include gardening, alongside my pets and reading. I really enjoy spending my weekends exploring new and old places and going on adventures with my family. I hope that alongside the school community, I can ensure my students have a truly remarkable education at St Brigid’s, as I embrace my first year at our school wholeheartedly, with passion and the willingness to grow.
Middle School Classroom Teacher (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
This will be my sixth year teaching at St Brigid’s and I still pinch myself every time I come to work. It actually doesn’t feel like work, it feels like being with an extended family of learners! Outside of school, I enjoy going to the movies, watching the Tigers play footy with my family and being in the bush.

Hi I’m Jayde. I am a graduate teacher and St B’s is the first school I’ve ever worked at as a qualified teacher, which is pretty awesome. I was fortunate to be offered a teaching position in 2022 with the senior students. I love being part of this community and I’ve found St Brigids super welcoming being so new to the profession. At St Brigid’s I want to create a learning environment in which all my students feel included, supported and like they can express themselves. I pride myself on creating and fostering positive relationships which are based on respect, acceptance and a whole heap of fun!!

I love my St. Brigid’s family. As a past student, an involved parent of over 10 years and a teacher, I am a very passionate and proud member of our school community. My children and I could not wish for a more loving and supportive environment to learn and grow. I am grateful for the dedication and enthusiasm our staff, parents and students alike show each and every day to make our community so unique.

My role at St Brigid’s is ICT, support and online help-desk.
After four decades of teaching I still enjoy coming into our school and working with everyone. Each day is different from the one before.
The feeling of community, the care and concern for the students, teachers parents and visitors makes St Brigid’s a very special school and I count myself very lucky to have been a part of it.
Digital Technologies Teacher (Email: email@example.com)
I have worked with Digital Technologies for many years. Starting out as an animator and video game designer in Australia, before doing a stint in toy Design in Asia (yes, very grown up jobs I know), before heading back home to share what I had learned, teaching in Secondary, Primary and Tertiary institutions.
I currently teach Digital Technologies at Macedon Primary, Mount Macedon Primary and Still Designs and make toys on the side at www.plywood.toys (check it out!).
I have been working at St Brigid’s Primary School as a CRT for the past few years and have always said what a pleasure it is to be around such a caring, passionate, engaged and funny group of young people.
Speech Pathologist (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
My name is Margaret Sacco and I have worked as a Speech Pathologist in the north-west for over 15 years in Catholic primary and secondary schools as well as private practice. I am passionate about education, supporting and promoting the diverse learning needs of children and advocating for children and their families from a range of needs and backgrounds. My many years of work in Catholic schools has provided me with a strong understanding of the curriculum, experience with various learning and teaching pedagogy and unique skills across all tiers of intervention. Seeing children reach their full potential and thrive in their learning is what continues to drive me in my work!
I live locally in Gisborne with my husband and our three gorgeous boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, pottering around on our farm, cooking, gardening and catching up with friends. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at St. Brigid’s and I can’t wait serve my local community!

Education Support Officer (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hi, I’m Robyn and I’m a Learning Support Officer here at St. Brigid’s. I love the sense of belonging and community felt here, built by the relationships between students, staff and families. I believe this is St. Brigid’s greatest strength, one reason my children attended the school and why I’ve been here since 2000.
At St. Brigid’s we truly know our students – their individual needs, learning styles, motivators, likes and dislikes and their abilities. Our teamwork creates successful partnerships and improves the learning outcomes for all students – whatever their starting point.
I encourage each student’s personal belief in their ability to succeed – so that they are engaged and feel they belong, in an environment which is both playful and yet challenging.
When I’m not at St. Brigid’s, I enjoy being with my family and friends, and getting away in the bush camping and getting back to nature.
Education Support Officer (Email: email@example.com)
I was employed by St Brigid’s in 2020 as an Education Support Officer. I recently graduated from Swinburne University with an Associate Degree in Education. I am passionate about supporting and advocating for students with additional needs, finding the strengths in each child, and supporting emotional and social learning. Outside of school, you will always find me in my garden, with my family (husband and three children), planning our next cruise or weekend adventure.

Following 36 years in business and 6 years of retirement I found myself a little bored and craving something more meaningful to do. After facilitating leadership development programs for 7 years during the latter stages of my business life, and having 3 children and 5 Grandchildren I knew I loved 3 things:
